Micro IDs / Confirmations

Bumper night last night with both Privet Hawk and Small Elephant Hawk. I collected a number of micros at about 10.30pm, I think I have a Barred Fruit Tree Tortrix, Codling Moth, what might still be a light brown apple moth but it semed a bit smaller than the female and not marked quite like a male, Pseudargyrotoza cowagana (there were lots of these) and another one I've been unable to find.

  1. Hi Mark, I'd go along with all your suggestions, while the final one is Celypha lacunana. The latter is such a common moth that it would be a good one to learn for the future!
