And a few tricky micros

There were a few dubious micros in the catch of the 26th in Wolvercote: a rather worn individual which I think may have been Archips xylosteana; a possible Phyllonorycter leucographella; and a complete mystery of a micro - as ever, all confirmations/suggestions very welcome. Steve and Xander Goddard.

Possible Archips xylosteana, 26/6/14

Possible Phyllonorycter leucographella, 26/6/14

No idea, but it looks as though it might be identifiable, 26/6/14


  1. I can't do your Phyllonorycter, but it's not leucographella. The top one looks more like a tatty Archips podana and the bottom one Brachmia blandella.

  2. Thanks, Peter -- I'll gladly exchange a leucographella (which we've had many a time before) for a Brachmia blandella, which is rare in our garden.
