Dusky Brocade

Dusky Brocade - yet another common species that has somehow managed to steer clear of my trap until now!
As well as my first ever Dusky Brocade last night, the trap contained the following species - Foxglove Pug, Green Pug, Grey Pug, Common Pug, Riband Wave, Common Emerald, Snout, Ruddy Carpet, Yellow Shell, Common Marbled Carpet, Small Fan-foot, Elephant Hawkmoth, Eyed Hawkmoth, Heart and Dart, Heart and Club, Dark Arches, Common Wainscot, Smoky Wainscot, L-album Wainscot, White Ermine, Buff Ermine, Flame, Minor Agg, Buff Arches, Bright-line Brown-eye, Uncertain, Small Square-spot, Clouded Silver and Silver Y. A number of 'micros' were also trapped but, true to form, I couldn't identify most of them! Those photographed below are a work in progress.
