BROAD-BARRED WHITE MOTH


Two nice moths in the garden tonight, (or rather on the side of the house).

The first being a "Broad-Barred White" - a very distinctive white moth with a dark band across the wings - no other moth looks like this.
Its not rare, is about 1.5cm long, and this one thought my old Scotland fleece would make an ideal hangout. It is wonderfully camouflaged - as Anna said, it just looks like a pale bit of lichen or something...
