For ID please (catch 7/8/2014)

A poor catch and an even pooer ID session - although I did get a Tawny Speckled Pug.

The first one - I thought maybe a Straw Underwing - I didn't even get the egg box out of the trap before this one was off -  usually only something the Yellow Underwings and some of the geometers do.

next again no idea - I thought it would be easy - that one also didn't hang about.

Final one - maybe a Flounced Rustic?

  1. Hi Mark, first and last are correct and the middle one is Scrobipalpa costella (watch out for Hypatima rhomboidella, also around now, which is superficially similar from a distance).
