Micro queries

May I ask for help with these visitors? The first was on our bedroom ceiling; I don't know if the bleached-out flash picture helps with the patterning but I like its ghostliness. Sorry for the quality. My best guess for the second one, below, is the Pine Resin-gall, retinea resinella, but I am usually wrong.

I also hosted this handsome Ringed China-mark, my first male one here, which gives me three out of four of that markedly pretty quartet of micros. Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon


  1. Lovely thanks. I will never master micros, but thatr's life. Anyone any thoughts on the ceiling moth?
