Toadflax Brocade

This small moth was in my trap this morning. At first I just thought it was a strikingly good-looking little fellow. But, it could be more significant than that. It turns out that it is a scarce migrant (resident on the south coast), rarely seen this far from the coast. Indeed, it is possibly a first for the vice-county (VC32), and I'm not sure if it has been recorded in Cambridgeshire (I will try and find out). I have sent some photos to the local (VC32) moth recorder.
