Author's notes

Looked about same size as Satin-green Forester but the markings were a bit different i.e. not fully green. Not sure if it is this species, and they vary in colour, or a different type of moth?

I think it is a Pollanisus species, there is often black on the wings. It does have its wings rolled more than I've noticed before, but that may well be because I've only seen active ones. Do the antennae in the photo have white tips?
