New Moths. July 2012.

 Over the last two weeks I was fortunate to add two new species to my moth list. Luckily I had one of my pots to hand on both occasions as the were found in the daytime. The above moth is a Broad-Barred White which was in lovely condition, and the beautiful moth below is a Lilac Beauty. The Lilac Beauty is a stunning moth and unlike any other with the front edges of the wings folded over. A lovely couple of additions.
