Southern Wainscot, Farcet Fen

A new species for me and my 5km square (TL29sw) which is a wainscot species-rich area with this being the 12th species.

Thanks to David G for his early photos and post to Cammoths highlighting the forehead band on this species. When I noticed an unusual wainscot in the trap this morning I immediately looked at its forehead and found what I was hoping for!
I'm always fascinated by what moths remind me of, and doesn't this species' face look just like a buffalo!
