A few queries from Longwick (Bucks)

Similar, although smaller, numbers here as Dave describes from Westcott with the addition of a Frosted Orange last night. Saturday saw a Hummingbird Hawk spend the day around our buddleiah too.

Below are a couple of queries of moths which are listed as common but new for me. The first is what I assume can only be Tischeria ekebladella and the second looks like Agriphila Inquinatella? I would appreciate confirmation - or otherwise!


  1. Hi Andrew, I agree with Tischeria ekebladella. Not sure about the grass moth, though - it doesn't look like inquinatella to me and I'd have thought tristella was more likely although I'd prefer to see a clearer image.
