Juniper twig geometer I  hope there&#039;s enough detail here. This moth was at a difficult angle, very high up on the outside of a building, right under the eaves. <br />
And I believe this ID is correct, any input most welcome. <br />

    1. Hi Ferdy..not so lucky with the continuing weather here though, strong winds (up to 46kph due tomorrow for example). I did put the sheet up yesterday, but I could see it was no use. If I'm not lucky specifically for moth week, I'll be utilising the lamp I bought just as soon as I can. Posted one month ago, modified one month ago
      1. No worries, and thanks so much for trying, hope the luck improves. Moths will always be welcome in any case! Posted one month ago
