More unidentified Micros

Sorry to post again today, but Saturday is my day for going through the week's photos. Found these two micros from Wednesday night. First moth has totally lost me, closest match for the second moth I can see is Cochylis hybridella?

Darren Seaman, Milton Keynes.


  1. Hello Darren, the first is Gypsonoma oppressana and the second is indeed Cochylis hybridella. The illustration in the micro field guide doesn't do the colours of oppressana justice - have a look at the images on the UK Moths website.

  2. Thanks Dave, still don't think i would've got oppressana from the ukmoths or the field guide images.
