Rhodophaea formosa and a few queries

From last night's garden haul, below are a few of the micros. I think this first one is Rhodophaea formosa (it looks very similar to the one in Steve Lackey's earlier post, fw 11mm).

And can I just check that this little character is Psyche casta?

I think the moth below must be Crassa unitella?

Finally, is the insect below (fw 5mm) a moth or something completely different?

All help much appreciated.

  1. Hi Steve, I think the last one is Parachronistis albiceps.

    1. Thanks Nigel, I should have spotted it in the book. Especially as I have seen one before, back in 2015.
