  1. That sounds like a great night, Mel. I don't know the status of Peacock in VC35 but we have no confirmed records in Carms. I am not quite certain of the ID of your one, and whether it might be Sharp-angled. Some characters suggest one and some suggest the other.

    1. Sam the line on outer edge of hind wing is unbroken that led me to Peacock. Sent a pic to Martin see what he thinks too.

    2. Indeed Sharp-angled Peacock confirmation just back from Martin.

  2. It's a notoriously difficult species pair! Lots of other nice stuff too - I very rarely see Dog's-tooth or Obscure Wainscot (but then I do live inland).
