General comments

Most examples will be easy to name, but some overlap may exist with Noctua janthe. In such cases the specimen should be kept (if photography is the only option, ensure that images show the entire upper surface of the hind wing - including the front edge that is normally hidden under the forewing. Our rather few records can all be linked by date to primary immigration.
