Pale Brindled Beauty


The Pale Brindled Beauty is a real winter moth. 
In mild winters the first adults may appear in November or December. 
The main period of being on the wing for this species is January and February. 
It is still seen in March and April, but numbers are decreasing quickly in this period. 
Because of this very curious period of flying around, this species is usually easily identified. 
The Pale Brindled Beauty is a common species over most of Europe.

I found it in the house of my sister-in-law and brother-in-law (and three nieces).
