  1. Hi there
    Your Udea is prunalis.

    I am also pretty sure your Beautiful Golden-Y's are actually Plain Golden-Y's.
    Nice catch

  2. Hi Ben, thanks, I made a mistake with the name under the pic, as I meant to put prunalis which was also NFY.

  3. Sorry I made a mistake with the naming of the Udea fulvalis should read Udea ferrugalis and the pic should read Udea prunalis as Ben pointed out. (Don't know how to edit old posts)

  4. I have corrected the two errors for you - for future reference if you look at the end of your post where it says 'Posted by Angle Shades' you will see a little pencil icon. If you click that you will be able to edit your post (don't forget to click the 'Update' button (top right) once you are finished editing :-)
