[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Angle Shades (Phlogophora meticulosa) is a moth of the family Noctuidae. It is a common and familiar European species and is often strongly migratory.
This species has a wingspan of 45-52 mm and the forewings are very distinctively shaped with a sharply pointed apex. The common name is derived from the characteristic markings on the forewings: the base colour is buffish, brown towards the termen, and is marked with a bold v-shaped pink and green marking. Despite this bright colouring, the angular markings provide excellent camouflage against foliage (the photo is a good example).The hindwings are whitish with darker venation. Two broods are produced each year, and in the British Isles, the adults are on the wing from May to October . This moth flies mainly at night and is attracted to light and sugar. It may often be seen during the day at rest on fences and garden foliage.
