Large Yellow Underwing Moth

Noctua pronuba


Totally unimpressive mottled grey till the wings open fully when the gorgeous yellow can be seen.


Flew in from the dark garden into the brightly lit kitchen. We took a few shots, trapped and released it into the garden. Urban residential area.


Thanks to Edna Steward Woodward and Malcolm W. Jones for the ID.
