|Possible Acleris comariana, 25/6/14|

Just the one
Now a distinct slow-down in Wolvercote, Oxon, with fewer than 100 individuals last night, including this fairly poorly-marked specimen: an Acleris, I think, and judging by size and season, probably not laterana; therefore perhaps comariana, or is it too poorly-marked to tell? Although we don't grow strawberries (Sterling and Parsons suggest comariana likes them), we do get bog-loving species, so it wouldn't be outlandish. An ulterior motive: it would be a garden first.
