Can you give an accurate wing length or wingspan please?
Peter,as you can see it was on the leaves when I went out and I took a quick shot. examining the size of the plant and my photo I can only estimate I'm afraid. 15-20mm I would say.
I am asking because there are 2 bigger ones and 2 smaller ones (4 species in total for the UK). That sounds like one of the bigger ones which means it is either abietella or sylvestrella and judging by the sub-terminal lines squiggles, yours is abietella
Thanks Peter, Abietella it is. A few to many squiggles!.
