ANGLE SHADES MOTH Phlogophora meticulosa

 

         The Angle Shades Moth Phlogophora meticulosa is a common and distinctively marked insect that may be encountered in gardens as their larvae will eat a variety of foodplants. The wing-shape is characteristic and unusual so they may be difficult to spot when resting on dead leaves. The first two photographs were taken in France and the final one in the UK.
