Tortrix trouble

 I caught these two micros over two nights, but am admitting to struggling a bit with the Id (both the same species?) I first thought maybe Cnephasia, but I'm not so sure.


  1. Hi Keith,
    That's Syndemis musculana, one of the first tortrix species to fly each year. It'll be over soon as its flight period is from late-April until early-June.

    1. That's interesting, I've had a couple of well marked specimens, but didn't associate these dowdy individuals with the same species.
