For ID / Confirmation Please

From the last few days.

The first I think must be a Mother of Pearl but i didn't realise they could be so yellow?

Honeysuckle Moth
Couldn't find the next one (2 pics)
I noticed one of the Scarce Footman looked very grey and wondered if it might be a Hoary Footman - however the yellow margin to the wing and the likelihood the underwing is straw seeing as the underside of the hindwing is orange - puts it as a Scaerce Footman, yes?

  1. For what it's worth I agree with all your ID's though I'll leave the Footman to someone more expert. You might want to take a look at Mompha subbistrigella for the micro.

  2. thanks Adam, looks like a good match!
