Thanks for that Dave, your pictures will be great for reference if i do get lucky in my search for this Moth, i went to local garden centre yesterday and looked over around 100 Olive trees but found nothing.

The first adult emerged today (thus sharing its 'birthday' with my wife - she wasn't too chuffed when I mentioned this!)

I like it, very witty indeed. :lol:

I managed to track this Moth down today, in a Garden Centre in Rayne Essex, Hopefully an Adult will emerge soon.
