Tiny speck

Could I ask whether I'm right in thinking that this minute arrival last night is Caloptilia semifascia? It shared the eggboxes with my first Red-green Carpet of 2014, one Chocolate-tip (with a wing fragment from another outside the trap), three Clouded Drabs, two Hebrew Characters, a Common Quaker, a large beetle and an earwig. The thing in the background is my Biro, for scale. Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon


  1. Hi Martin, yes that's semifascia.

  2. Lovely, many thanks. It's so small, I nearly missed it. Much appreciate expertise, as always. M
