I’ve recently started to look more at moths . I’ve bought a new book which is really helpful and shows how many moths there are … actually 100s!
This moth was sitting in the kitchen surface this evening.
Spent a few minutes using the new book – it’s a dot moth (Melanchthon persicaruae)
The larvae feed on low growing plants. They are common in central and southern Britain.
I like the way it’s name is so descriptive!
