|Moth Night at Mousehold|
There were no complications when it came to identifying this next moth. This is a copper underwing. It is another one of these brown moths with pale stripes and small eye spots on the wings, but it is the coppery underwings that give the moth it's name. However, there are two species of copper underwing and they look more or less identical to each other. Apparently, the best way to separate these species apart is to study the markings of the underside of the hindwings.
