? Beauty ?

Is this one of the "Beautys" ? It seems very close to the Willow Beauty but the colours and markings aren't quite the same although could be a variation.


Had spent the night on the inside frame of our kitchen window.


Wing tip to tip was about 3cm.

    Hi Graham,

    Your moth is most likely a Riband Wave (Idaea aversata), they are typically variable in color but are usually more of a buff or yellow-ish color, but as mentioned variable.  It looks a bit worse for ware, so I'm sure appreciated the safe harbour of your kitchen window for the night


    Hope this helps
