Confirmations & IDs please

Two new "classic" moths for me last night, Chinese Character (quite lovely close up) and Ruby Tiger.

Here are ones I'm less sure of;

first a coleophorid? - not sure if we can go any further on the basis of the pics

next Anania coronata or stachydalis - I assume it's the commoner former?

next a Cloaked Minor?

the last one might be a caddis fly!

  1. 1 & 2 a Coleophorid and likely to need the chop to be identified.
    3 as you say A coronate
    4 is Marbled Minor agg. In Cloaked Minor the colouration of the of the inner portion and outer portion of the wing forms an obvious straight line across the wing.
    5 is a caddis.
