A few questionable macros...

Some busy nights here in Wolvercote, Oxon, earlier this week left us running to catch up, but were nonetheless very welcome. We had some very pleasing species which were readily identifiable - Scorched Wing on the 21st, where we had over thirty species, for example, and Iron Prominent last night - but quite a few which we could do with guidance on. To avoid too huge a single post, I'm dividing these into macro- and micro-moths; apologies in advance for numbers. So here we have a rather battered individual which may be a Minor of some sort; a presumed Common Wainscot (its hindwing was quite pale); what looks like a Currant Pug and a Marbled Minor aggregate; a presumed Marbled White Spot (which would be a garden first); and what I think are a Small Dusty Wave and a Turnip Moth. Any thoughts/confirmation would be very welcome. Steve and Xander Goddard.
