A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Hi Mark, your micro is one of the Phyllonorycter species. While there is a published key to adult wing patterns (http://delta-intkey.com/britin/phy/) which might - or might not! - lead to a correct determination, often the only safe way to tell many of them apart is via genitalia examination. As most are specific to one particular food-plant, the easiest way to identify them is to look for the larval stage leaf-mines (see http://www.leafmines.co.uk/index.htm).
Shame the side view is so blurry, it looks interesting.
