A couple of ID queries

Moth trap run on 13/09/16 in my Tilehurst garden.
Top moth species = Light Brown Apple (26) followed by Large Yellow Underwing (8).
Total of 55 moths and 16 species.

Strange for me No Lunar Underwings. In 2014 on 16/09 I had 65. What on earth is going on?

Onto my ID queries.
Small Dusty Wave?

The above two are the same species, but I haven't a clue. Help needed please.

  1. Hello Tony, yes to Small Dusty Wave and I think your tortrix is Crocidosema plebejana which would be quite a nice record.

    Lunar Underwing hasn't got going here yet either ... but it will!! Give it another week or so and I'm sure you'll be seeing plenty of them.
