A carpet and a few micros for ID help

Having finally managed to reduce my questions from Friday night's catch I am left with these if anyone is able to help.

Very dark brown with virtually no markings, head yellowish. Sorry about the quality of the photo.

I can't decide on this carpet.

Is this one even a moth?

An Acrobasis species?

I was considering Bryotropha terrella or a small Brown House Moth but neither seem quite the same as ones I have caught previously.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

  1. Hi Andy, the 'carpet' is a Barred Rivulet and the one below it is a moth: Borkhausenia fuscescens.


  2. Thank you. A couple more for my rapidly growing list.
