Another micro for ID please

I think this one looks a bit like Bryotropha terrella but as always advice would be welcome.
It was approximately 7mm in length.

  1. Hi Andy, yes that is Bryotropha terrella. Keep an eye open for the even smaller but better marked Bryotropha affinis whose larvae also feed on mosses. Both are quite common locally.

  2. Thank you. I am slowly building up a list of micros and it is encouraging to have identifications confirmed.
