One more miscellany

One more (for the time being) set of individuals we've not pinned down in Wolvercote, Oxon: several may be unidentifiable, but we have a pretty good idea of a couple. First, what I think may be an Ancylis uncella from 3rd July; likewise a speculative Yponomeuta malinellus, about 9mm long; what I'm sure must be a Round-winged Muslin except for a nagging worry that it's wings don't look that rounded, from 4th July; a micro from 4th July which looks identifiable, but which I haven't managed to finalise; and a battered-looking macro from 3rd July whose general shape I hope might ring bells. With thanks in anticipation, and to all who have been so patient so far!

Possible Ancylis uncella, 3/7/15

Possible Yponomeuta malinellus, 5/7/15

Presumed Round-winged Muslin, 4/7/15

Unknown micro, 4/7/15

Unknown macro, 3/7/15


  1. maybe the last one is a male Drinker if it was a big fella.

  2. Rhopobota naevana, Yponomeuta aggregate, Round-winged Muslin, Epinotia demarniana and the last is too tatty, but Mark is probably correct.

  3. Many thanks, both: Drinker does seem likely, as we had five of them otherwise in the trap that night.
