Micros - how am I doing?

I am making more of an effort this year to identify the micros that appear in my trap. Just catching them and getting them to stay still seems to be a challenge, let alone identifying and photographing them! However, here are some that I think I have managed to recognise. As ever, confirmation would be very welcome.
The first I think is Eucosma cana (fw 9mm).

The second is Batia lunaris (fw 5mm).

Next is Archips xylosteana (fw 8mm).

And I believe this is Ancylis achatana (fw 9mm).

Finally, after much studying of the Common Micro-moths of Berkshire book, I believe this is Eudonia lacustrata (fw 8mm) rather than mercurella.
