Cochylis molliculana? and others for ID

hi, putting up another couple of pics of the possible Cochylis molliculana taken before an unscuccessful unpotting

Also I think I have my first Pandemis corylana

Acrobasis advenella - very red behind the head

the first Flounced Rustic? here

A Gold Triangle - this one sits oddly compared to the others I've seen.

Last one is maybe just a tired Rustic/Uncertain?

  1. Pandemis corylana, Acrobasis advenella, Flounced Rustic and Hypsopygia costalis are indeed all correct. Like Orthopygia glaucinalis and Endotricha flammealis, costalis can occasionally adopt a different resting position to confuse the unwary!

  2. And the last one is one of the Hoplodrinas, most likely blanda.
