Lunar Underwings

Cooler weather and the approach of the full moon make for smaller (and more manageable) moth catches. Lunar Underwings are one of the commonest species in the trap in autumn and they are now appearing at the rate of a few each night. They come in a range of colour forms including some much darker than the ones illustrated here.
