November Moth agg.
Epirrita dilutata agg.

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) 1795x
=Epirrita sp.

Identification: The November moth group are very difficult to seperate on wing markings alone. The end of the abdomen needs to be checked - this can be done without killing the moths by gently brushing off the scales and comparing with the photo shown on this page which shows the differences. Females cannot be readily identified, even with dissection.
Any records which haven't had abdomens checked will need to be recorded as aggregates.

Verification Grade Comment: Grade 1 for aggregate records only

Recorded in 44 (76%) of 58 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1964.
