Unknown macros

As mentioned, we have a few mysteries from the last few weeks in Wolvercote, Oxon, starting with macros, many of which are probably slightly unusual specimens of pretty familiar species, or just too faded to be identifiable. Firstly, what is probably some sort of rustic from 29th August; a rather faded specimen from 13th August; very possibly an individual of the same species as the first one, from 22nd August; a faded specimen from 27th August; what should surely be an identifiable individual from 22nd August; a likely Yellow Shell from 29th August, but which doesn't quite look right; and a pug - possibly unidentifiable - from 22nd August. As ever, all help gratefully received.

  1. You should know some of these by now Steve. Small Square-spot, Cloaked Minor, Small Square-spot, Not sure, Turnip, Yellow Shell and Double Striped Pug.

  2. Apologies, Peter, and you're quite right on several -- to be fair, I had some notion of what some of them were, and mainly needed confirmation. The Cloaked Minor, however, I don't think I would have worked out.
