Confirmations please

Round up from a couple of days, I think I have

Pempelia formosa
Small Blood Vein
Stenoptilia pterodactyla
Ypsolopha scabrellus

Aethes smeathmanniana?
Agriphila straminella
Foxglove Pug
Don't know - lots of things look close!

  1. Hi Mark, I'd certainly agree with Pempelia Formosa, Small Blood-vein, Ypsolopha scabrella, Aethes smeathmanniana and Agriphila straminella. I'm afraid I can't see enough of the plume to be sure what it is, while the image of the pug isn't really clear enough for me but someone else might like to offer an opinion on whether it is Foxglove or Toadflax. Can't really be absolutely sure about the small tortrix either, but it has a hint of Lobesia abscisana about it.

  2. The Pug looks more like a fresh Double-striped Pug to my eyes.
