November Moth/Pale November Moth/Autumnal Moth - record as November Moth agg. if using MapMate and not Epirrita sp. Wing markings are only a guide and there is a lot of overlap. Autumnal Moth may be acceptable from experienced observers if well marked, otherwise genitalia examination is essential (CHF).
