mixed bag and more ID

Is this just a form of Common Rustic?  never seen it before but had 3 last night.
Pillar on my hosta- anyone any ideas?

Rosy Tiger

Flounced Rustic? 
Lunar Thorn

Also Mother of Pearl, Barred Yellow, more Burnished Brass last night.  On Sat had about 50 Waterboatmen!  Felt a bit guilty.


  1. The Caterpillar is Grey Dagger I think.

  2. Hi Rob,

    Your first moth looks good for a Common/Lesser Rustic (I don't think you can separate the two without gendetting).
    Your 'flounced' could be a Dusky Brocade (these can be pretty variable - also a bit early for FR)?
