Dawlish Warren Village mystery moth May 17th

The 'mystery' moth I posted on may 17th was identified, thanks to Devon Moth Group, as Aethes deaurana, a species from southern Europe. This is the first Devon record and only the third for Britain. The first two were found in Weymouth and there has just been another found there suggesting possible colonisation.

Aethes deaurana. First Devon record.
