Welcome arrivals

The sort of guest list I like this morning: Poplar and Eyed Hawks, Scorched and Sandy Carpets. But may I ask for help with the micro - familiar but not exactly like any of the clutch of similar ones in Sterling and Parsons, at least to my (hopeless) eye.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon


  1. Hi Martin, a very nice selection there! The micro is a Cnephasia but unfortunately there's a small group of them which can't be safely ID'd to species without genitalia inspection.

  2. Thanks very much Dave. Cnephasia is as far as I got - and as far as I will go! Great that your moths continue so well All v best M

  3. Hi and many thanks - it has a look of it, doesn't it, but I don't think the shape and banding is quite right. They are devils to sort out! All v best M
