In line with Tom's new thinking on Agonopetrix heracliana / ciliella, I have lumped them together below. They are unidentifiable without dissection. He has sampled some recently and found gen detted heracliana with 5 lines in the hindwing cillia, supposedly a ciliella feature?

Back to the drawing board...

Nice catch Stewart, I'm struggling for Dotted Border so far and Mottled Grey doesn't really exist in VC30!

Cheers Matt, both quite regular here...
