Brown-spot Pinion among the Beaded Chestnuts

A Brown-spot Pinion - uncommon here at Dingestow Court - was highlight of 50+ moths of 10 species that came to MV on 30th September.  I regularly stare at Beaded Chestnuts with dark costal markings, just in case, but - as is so often the case with moths - the real thing is instantly recognisable.  The rounded orbicular stigma contrasts nicely with the narrow one on Beaded Chestnut.
