What do you think Suzi? The shape and colour on the upper forewing suggest Telicota ... ? If so, this is another 'first' for our Atlas records!

Very interesting. Looks very much like Pale-orange Darter (Telicota colon) instead to me, which would be a southern range extension...!

wow ... the Wings of Spring is really throwing up surprises! I know other people were also taking shots of this one, so perhaps a few more photos will help
