Confirmations Please

Another good night (for me at least)

I think I have

 Coleophora trifolii

Hedya nubiferana

Homoeosoma sinuella

Can someone confirm?

Mark Griffiths, Garsington, Oxford


  1. Coleophora mayrella, Hedya nubiferana and Homoeosoma nebulella.
    It's mayrella because of the thickened flagellum at the base and then the rest of the antennae is ringed

  2. Hi Mark, I'll leave Peter to comment on the Coleophorid but the other two are correct. I had sinuella in my own garden last night too, amongst getting on for 90 species, certainly a good night for mid-June.

  3. I wrote nebulella, I meant of course sinuella
