Lead-coloured Drab vs Clouded Drab

These two photos show males of both Lead-coloured Drab and Clouded Drab trapped in Chicksands Wood overnight 21/22 March 2010. On these you can clearly see the partially feathered (bipectinated) antennae of the male Lead-coloured Drab. The females of both species have toothed (bidentate) antennae like the male Clouded Drab.
