Some IDs please

Can someone help with these please?

I think I have

Small Blood-vein
Small Fan-footed wave
Red-barred Fruit-tree Tortrix?
Early Thorn

the final non moth turned up in the trap. I think it's Ledra aurita

  1. Four out of five.
    Red-barred Fruit-tree tortrix (whatever that is) is Archips podana (male).
    Ledra is a fantastic thing, especially when very large and greenish with algae on its back.
