Remember this rather worn and drab moth from the previous post which I found on the wall of Tense Towers? Well, the county Lepidoptera recorder for Orkney persevered with it, asked for more and better photos (I could only provide more and worse ones), then he called in help from another expert, and they have come up with an ID.
It's a male Satin Beauty Deileptenia ribeata. This is the first record of the species in Orkney. As they say around here, I am some chuffed.
