For confirmation / IDs please

First up, not sure what it is other than I managed to kill it. Maybe a Common Marbled Carpet as nothing else seems to fit?

Second I think might be Lozotaenia forsterana - but some books say that is grey?

The second might be a reddish form of Acleris sparsana?

The final one I suspect is a caddis fly as I can find nothing like it in my books.

  1. Hi Mark, Large Twin-spot Carpet for the first, correct on the second, third is Clepsis consimilana and fourth does look like a caddis to me.


  2. thanks Nigel. I'd hoped the carpet was one of the really common ones after managing to kill it today.
