Yellow daytime flying moth

with No Comments
Several brightly coloured day flying moths have been sighted in recent days.

Two Speckled Yellow moths, Pseudopanthera macularia were seen on the South West Coast Path alongside the Helford Estuary.

This is a moth that’s often mistaken for a small yellow butterfly in flight but more easily identified when settled.

Other yellow moths that can be disturbed during the day are The Brimstone moth and the Yellow Shell.

Earlier in the week one of the most easily identifiable migrant moths in the British Isles the Hummingbird Hawk-moth was seen visiting flowering Geraniums in the garden.
