Two of the photos were new species for the website namely a beautiful Archer's Dart which is extremely dark and well marked and tends to be special to the southern heathland of Hampshire and Dorset, and another migrant from the southern regions around the Mediterranean Basin,namely the Blair's Mocha and another superb specimen.
Both moths were caught to light in the Southampton area so we are talking south coast.
Maurice has also supplied another two photos of interest,the first being an open wing shot of a female Emperor Moth and a photo of an Argent & Sable taken at Spean Bridge,Inverness-shire,Scotland one of the places to see the Chequered Skipper,one I hope to see one day.
I had wondered if the Argent and Sable was the Scottish subspecies R.h.nigrescens but am not sure exactly where its found only its general location.
The moth trap last night was much the same story with a NFY being the Flame Shoulder.
