Small Marbled

This scrappy little moth is not a chewed-up micro but a magnificently rare Immigrant macro called Small Marbled. According to the Northants Moths website, one appeared in Northamptonshire (ie VC32) in May 1953 and there hasn't been one since. As it happens, it turned up on 11.7.11, the same night as my two Toadflax Brocades and a Small Ranunculus.
