         In the opinion of the author the Black Arches Lymantria monacha is one of the most beautifully marked British moths (although there are plenty of other contenders). The first two photographs are of a freshly emerged specimen. The more faded black markings on the moth in the final photograph may have been due to natural variation or wear and tear.
