More moths, more puzzles

A handsome Brindled Beauty came calling last night along with two Twin-spotted Quakers, to keep my tally of new arrivals for the year healthy. I know it's dim of me after you've only just ID-ed a White-marked for Mark, but may I ask if this is another one, above?

I also append two terrible pics, one of what I take to be an Early Thorn (which scampered immediately afterwards) and the other of a Plume which I imagine is unidentifiable from this image. Finally, I am wrestling with the micro at the bottom...  Many thanks for any help as ever, in advance.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon


  1. Good morning Martin,
    The first image it depends which moth you are referring to. You have a White-marked and a Hebrew Character.
    The plume image is dreadful, but likely Emmelina monodactyla
    Wings up and closed like a butterfly = Early Thorn.
    Finally it looks like Depressaria chaerophylli

  2. Perfect - many thanks, Peter. I am trying with the micros but it's uphill work...

    all v best
