Wax Moth, Vine's Rustic and other moths

Angle Shades, Phlogophora meticulosa
On Sunday evening our balcony light attracted many moths, including a new one, a Wax Moth (Galleria mellonella), so called because the larva feed on honey bee larvae, pupae, and pollen and honey. 
Other moths: Angle Shades, Common Plume, Marbled Beauty, Poplar Grey, Vine's Rustic, Rusty Dot Pearl and Setaceous Hebrew Character.
