Cochylis sp.

I initially thought this was C. roseana, but as I cannot see any markings in the cilia, I'm now thinking it might be C. flaviciliana. I've seen neither of these species before so help would be appreciated. It was found indoors today (Loosley Row, Bucks).



  1. I think this is one that needs the attentions of Peter's microscope to be absolutely sure but I'm tempted towards a rather well-marked Falseuncaria ruficiliana. I don't think the image in Sterling & Parsons is a particularly good likeness for that species.

  2. I think that is a good call Dave. There is an image on the Hants moth website that looks a very good fit to this moth Nigel (second image of three)
