Double Line - Saint Hill nr Kentisbeare
Another new moth courtesy of Martin. Double Line is a scarce and localised species, predominantly in the south-west and south Wales, with a preference for woodland, so it's unlikely I'll see it here in Exmouth. It's another of my beloved 'mythimna' species, similar'ish to Clay but with the obvious two dark lines running across the wings. I'm really pleased to have seen it - yet again a big thank you to Martin.

Hi Matt - had a Double Line many years ago on the Warren so a migrant is not impossible in Exmouth. Also had Clay Triple-lines on Warren Point. Cheers KevReplyDelete
Hi Kev - yep I thought you'd had one at the Warren - still don't reckon I'll get one here but you never know. Surprised you had Clay Triple-lines but I suppose anything is possible when it comes to moths. Thanks for getting in touch. MattDelete
No Double Line here Matt ... but I also had Twin-barred Knot-Horn.ReplyDelete
Hi Nick - see you had palpitta vitrealis too - quality immigrant species. Hope the conference went well. Have a good trip tomorrow. MattDelete
