General comments:

One adult of his north-western upland moth at a light trap in a garden in Wembley, on 2nd August 2010, was initially dismissed as an error, but the captor had the wisdom and foresight to hang on to the moth until it (rather than a photograph) could be seen by a "grown up". The identification was subsequently confirmed by Martin Honey at the Natural History Museum.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.
