Some IDs and confirmations please

The first Crambid I've not been able to get a match.

then I think I possibly have a White-point - I've had a few Clays recently but this one seems to have a more definite white spot.

the next one Batia lunaris - sorry I don't have the size but it was tiny.

then Blue bordered Carpet.

  1. Your White-point is a Clay, 3 and 4 I agree with. Not sure of 1.

  2. I think your scoparid is probably just ambigualis although it is not easy to tell from that picture. I agree with Adam that you have a Clay, while the other two are indeed Batia lunaris and Blue-bordered Carpet.

  3. White-points tend to be a deeper brown colour and the wing markings are slightly different. Clay usually shows that dark line through the white circle that shows up well on your photo
