Brick or Yellow-line Quaker? and Blastobasis

 Not sure about this one. I don't often get the Brick. Townsend & Waring say the key diagnotic is the straightness or otherwise of the outer cross-line that makes this one a Brick? And Blastobasis lacticolella?

  1. Hi Mark,

    That is indeed a Brick. The other photo looks like it might be Blastobasis lacticolella but it would be much easier to confirm if it was not inside a glass tube.
