Bless – the first Grasshopper of 2013 has appeared in the garden. Well, the first I have seen anyway.

Pyrausta aurata

Pyrausta aurata

Found this little bundle of gorgeousness in the garden. He/She sat around and waited for me to get my camera. This species is often confused with Pyrausta purpuralis. Both can be bright purple with golden markings, especially when fresh, or brown with yellowish markings, especially when worn. The principal distinguishing feature is the arrangement of the postmedian markings on the forewing.
