Yponomeuta rorrella?

 After seeing Dave's note about this species and having reviewed my photographs, I if this is Yponomeuta rorrella? I had two grey small ermines on 27th July. This is darker than Dave's I think but the terminum is grey and there is that little white patch in front. Can the ID of this one also be confirmed? Actually due to a mishap I still have one of the moths, it died a few hours after potting.

  1. That certainly could be a candidate, Mark, but I'd need to see a clearer, better lit image, preferably from the other side so that the fringe on the wing isn't in the way. These Yponomeutas are very docile moths and are quite easy to photograph outside the pot.
