Here are a few more from this week on Sunday night when it was very mild resulting in 28 species of moth with one still to be identified which is as far as I can remember my best October species capture for one night.

Blood-Vein (Timandra comae)
Barred Sallow (Tiliacea aurago)
Blair’s Shoulder-knot (Lithophane leautieri)
Red-Green Carpet (Chloroclysta siterata)
Sallow (Cirrhia icteritia)
Scarce Bordered Straw (Helicoverpa armigera) – A moderately frequent immigrant from southern Europe, north to Shetland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight moderately common and widely distributed throughout in some years.
Green-brindled Crescent (Allophyes oxyacanthae) – Common in broad-leaved woodland, scrub, hedgerows and gardens throughout the British Isles, a species of conservation concern under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widely distributed, but not particularly common. Wingspan 38-48 mm. Occurs in two forms, and their intermediates, in any shade on a scale from green to brown.
Large Wainscot (Rhizedra lutosa) – Common in reed-beds throughout much of the British Isles, a species of conservation concern under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widely distributed in the drier parts of reed-beds in all three vice-counties. Occasional wanderers, nearly always females, are taken at light some distant from known breeding colonies. Larva feeds on Common Reed, over-wintering as an egg.
Straw Dot (Rivula sericealis)
Beaded Chestnut (Agrochola lychnidis)
Hypsopygia glaucinalis – Common around sheds and farm buildings, in gardens, hay-stacks, thatched roofs and bird nests throughout southern England. Wingspan 23-30 mm. Larva feeds on decaying vegetable matter such as hay, and on detritus in bird nests.
