Confirmations & IDs please

hi, I think I have here

 Argyresthia trifisciata

Dusky Brocade?

Another Dusky Brocade?

 Epinotia nisella

 A another one I think is Agriphila selasella - hopefully a better pic

  1. Hi Mark, the Argyresthia is goedartella with its metallic gold sheen (trifasciata is a late-spring species). Dusky Brocade should also be over by now and your two noctuids are actually Flounced Rustic which (along with Square-spot Rustic) produces the most ID requests in August. Yes to Epinotia nisella and I'm far more convinced by your selasella picture this time!
