A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Hi Andy,Top one too worn to be remotely confident on an already tricky group but my guess would be Eudonia lacustrata.Next one looks like Gypsonoma dealbana. Last one I would say is probably Scoparia ambigualis. 3rd one as you say is phragmitella which seems to stray far from its habitat as I catch it everywhere including my Didcot garden where there is no foodplant anywhere near that I can see although someone may have a well vegetated pond somewhere I guess but used to get it up on the chalk ridge in old garden too.

Thank you. I can see the G. dealbana now with the flatter back and the shape of the dark area. I must admit these bird-dropping like tortrix do look very similar to the inexperienced.
