Carpet choice

You know what it's like, just when you think you know what you've decided on you look again and think that one's much the same but different!. Spruce or Grey Pine, at first I was undecided but now I'm not so sure. Help appreciated please.

  1. It has the look of Spruce Carpet to me, Steve, especially with that fairly clear whitish looping outer cross-line. However, these are a difficult pair!

  2. My first thought was indeed Spruce but the more I looked the less convinced I was. Thanks Dave.

  3. The link below gives some information on these two species, including using male antennal features for identification.
