This blog is about all forms of wildlife I record around North Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes in particular. My main interests for 2012 will be looking for anything I've not seen before.

Moth ID

Whilst putting the dustbins out this evening a moth flew into the garage and started flying around the internal light. I gave it a quick look over and thought I'd be able to 'ID' it from my books. I could not. So I went back into the garage and luckily the moth was still inside. After 5 minutes of getting it into a pot and bringing it inside. I'm was still none the wiser.
Guesses include a White-point!? So before I emailed a few experts I tried one last flick through the books when I came upon a 'Satellite' Eupsilia transversa, I think it's this because of the two dots adjacent to the small white 'kidney' shape. It flies September to May in urban habitats.
A first for me I think.

Satellite Eupsilia transversa


  1. Nice garden tick. Still yet to add this species to my garden list.

  2. Cheers Paul, I was going to text you to help with the ID. But found it just in time ;-)
