Having said that, this Burnished Brass was a joy to behold in the trap this morning, as was the floating baguette of a Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing below. There were at least 75 moths among the eggboxes too, which is very respectable, even if most of the others were the smallish, brownish and greyish brethren who cause me such problems with ID.
Here are some, including a couple of Snouts with their palps - a somewhat mysterious organ of insects - respectively open and closed. Weather permitting, I shall be lighting the lamp again tonight, as Penny has come back with an exciting pink eggbox, the first time that colour has appeared among the blues, greens, greys and beiges familiar in the trap.

in Comments I can tell you this one is a Lesser Yellow Underwing
