Waved Black and some for ID/confirmation

Got my first Waved Black this morning.

I'm baffled by the micro - I've been trying to use the bird-dropping moth book for these.

Then I think I have a Common Wave rather than Common White Wave.

Finally a slightly odd looking Dagger - it sat flatter than they usually do too.

  1. Hello Mark, yes to Common Wave and I think you'll find that your tortrix is a poorly-marked Spilonota ocellana.
