    Default What is this moth?

    Can anyone identify this moth please? Spotted this morning in Wick, it's about 1.5" long. The nearest I have found on Google is the Bogong moth from Australia but last time I looked Wick was still in Caithness. I have been searching under dark brown moth, brown moth, black moth etc and the bogong is the result nearly every time. Maybe it's just called a dark brown moth??

    After more searching I think the square spot rustic fits the bill. http://www.ukmoths.org.uk/species/xestia-xanthographa

    your moth is a Large Yellow Underwing - a dark one, some are lighter, very common this time of year.
