A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Hello Darren, the first is Hedya pruniana and the second is, as you say, a Cnephasia sp (needs the chop to get to species). The third looks a bit more interesting but would need a better image plus an indication of size.
Thanks for that Dave, i did look at Plum Tortrix but wasn't sure. How do i go about getting the Cnephasia chopped?
First step is to keep the moth safe in a tube in the freezer (it can sit there almost indefinitely). Second step is to find someone who has the knowledge/equipment/time/patience to do the deed, so I suggest you try twisting Peter Hall's arm.
Isn't the third one a Caddis Fly?Andy.
