Moth variations

Recently I have been finding autumnal moths in my trap, and it is suprising the variations in colour, or tone, within some species, such as Lunar Underwing. The next pic is typical, the following one is of a very pale individual, and some are almost black

Turnip moths vary enormously, too, this one being unusually pale for specimens trapped in my garden


This is a Rosy Rustic, usually nice and pink, or rosy! - this one was so untypically pale for my garden I thought it was something different, but I couldnt find anything else in my book. Nor could I find a photo of a pink one!

And finally, look at the difference in these Dun Bar moths
