Satyr Pug, chalk downland near Sevenoaks: 26 June 2020
Had a walk up the downs with Fred Butcher. Among the many micros we netted was this one pug - initially and with fading eyesight (in naff light), I assumed it to be a Grey Pug. Fred considered otherwise and correctly so. The following morning and with the benefit of my camera, the full beauty of this Satyr Pug was evident.
The true highlight of this evening was this Hypercallia citrinalis. Discovered in 2019 after being presumed extinct in the UK since 1975...!
