Little but smart

One of the micro moths I've noticed in the last few weeks in small numbers is Pammene aurana.

A rather smart little moth with brown and orange spots. Seen only in small numbers along Pocklington Canal, a couple at Tophill Low Nature Reserve and a single seen along Leven Canal. Apparently a local species, all the ones recorded have been on the hogweed.
