Slightly more like summer

With 148 individuals of 53 species so far identified in Wolvercote, Oxon, last night felt a bit more like it. Unfortunately, I'm going to be away during the really warm nights predicted for this coming week - though in fact, since we've quite a backlog of puzzling species as it is, it may not be that unfortunate. Like others, we've been picking up a fair few Mottled Rustics; below are a few other macros we've not been able to definitely identify, and they'll be followed by a few other uncertainties. The first two are a possible candidate for Dark Umber from last night, but to be honest, I can't make its characteristics match up with anything for sure; Then there's what could be a Double Dart from 24th June; and a presumed Mottled Beauty (form conversaria), also from the 24th. As ever, all help much appreciated; a few more to follow.
