Hi Dave,Ypsolopha mucronella and looks like Common Pug to me. BW, Marc
Hello Dave, I agree with Marc. Ypsolopha mucronella for the micro (a spindle feeder in its classic pose, always nice to see). The pug is probably Common but if you want to be sure with any melanic examples then Peter is your man...
Also agree with Marc and Dave, a melanic form.
Thanks all.I had seen mucronella and dismissed it as being (a) a little out of season and (b) it not being very common and (c) I'm probably about 1/2 mile - maybe more - from the nearest spindle tree. CheersDave
