Red-belted Clearwing

East Malling Research Station 15/8/12

Found by Ross Newham without the use of pheromones in an apple orchard at the research station.

Many thanks to Ross for sharing with us.

Svensson's Copper Underwing

Photos taken by Keith Heaven at Sandwich 10/8/12. As is quite typical for this (and other related) species it was found seeking shelter in a patio umbrella (nest boxes seem to be a favourite as well). The dark labial palps with pale tips are often quoted as one of the ways to separate this from Copper Underwing.
