|On Parsley Water-dropwort|
The large dark splodge on each forewing together with smaller black round-bractet is highly indicative of this moth. When the insect is resting it could easily be mistaken for a bird dropping. Has many habitats in open land. Is not fussy and can be found on a wide range of herbaceous plants. 20-24mm across when opened.
