991 Clepsis senecionana, Norland Bilberry slopes, May 4th 2011. Netted by day. A common, Bilberry loving species here during May. Even on fresh adults such as this one there is little patterning other than a few feint lines.

998 Light Brown Apple Moth (male), the greenhouse, May 30th 2014. Captured by day. Perhaps the most ubiquitous of all the species I encountered until the two severe winters of 2009/10 and 2010/11 decimated their numbers.
