Confirmations & IDs please

Much better night last night but many moths were a bit worn.

I'm condering if the first moth (2 pics, one for size) might be a worn Buttoned Snout?

Then a worn Celphya striana (first of the year)

Then Homoeosoma sinuella

Finally this one didn't quite fit the normal Willow or Mottled Beauty

  1. I agree with all your IDs Mark. Final one looks like Mottled Beauty to me (plus a Middle-barred Minor).

  2. Excellent, thanks Adam. Buttoned Snout is a new one for me.

  3. The Buttoned Snout does at least have an excuse for being tatty because it has been around since probably August last year. As has been noted on here previously, it has had a good season with more coming to light traps recently than I've ever heard of before. Nice record!

  4. thanks Dave, I'm pleased with it too.
