    Hi Jamie, I've had another look in Goater and asked around. Yes, you're right.

    Many thanks for taking the trouble to point it out.

    Jamie McMillan commented on "Pyrausta purpuralis Linnaeus":

    I am worried that all the photos here are i/d as P.purpuralis and there are none of P.ostralis, which is very similar and whose main diagnostic features are on the underside. I would not be confident enough to i/d any of these from these photos alone, but the photographers may have turned them over? Anyway, there is defo a need for some P.ostralis pics. If there are any contributors on Jersey (CI) they could help as ostralis is the only one there.

    Jamie McMillan commented on an older version of Image of Pyrausta aurata:

    I think this one is P.aurata. I can't see the hindwing which would clinch it, but the yellow spot on postmedial line nearest the dorsum doesn't look big enough. The underside on the other photos I think rules it out. There should be a pale postmedial crescent on the underside of the hindwing - this looks like a yellow spot.
