  1. Hello Steve, I'll go along with your ID for the second one, anyway! The first needs to be extracted from the pot for a better picture to stand a chance of determining it correctly but seems to have a hint of a pink flush over the outer half of the wing. Cochylis roseana may be more likely.

  2. Thanks Dave, I see from a further question above, with a better picture, that Cochylis roseana certainly looks a better bet. Certainly on it's release a pink flush was noticeable.
