IDs please

these were all from the last few days.

the first one (3 pics) I can't find.

then a wave - maybe a bit worn but it looked smaller than the usual Ribands

the next one - I found several close matches - maybe Bryotropha similis?

then Argyresthia goedartella?

finally a Shaded Broad-bar i think - another NFM

  1. The first looks to me like one of the conifer-feeding Argyresthias which would need dissection to get to species. I suspect the Wave is a washed-out Small Fan-footed, the next is a Bryotropha but looks to me more like terrella than the much darker similis, then you have Argyresthia goedartella and Shaded Broad-bar as you suggest.
