A lot of nice photos, Brian!

Carcina quercana that I caught last night - note long antennae.

One more:

Archips podana is common in my garden. Not too similar to Archips Xylosteana (on page 1)

I will throw my two penneth worth in. I am no expert (as some of you will testify) but I have a few moths that could benefit this thread.

1. Acleris forsskaleana
2. Catoptria pinella


I will look for some more after this has uploaded.

A few more to add to the list.

I must admit I wish I could do a narrative around these moths like Brian can but I just don't know enough about the subject to do it.

1. Green Oak Tortrix - Tortrix viridana
2. Large Fruit-tree Tortrix - Archips podana
3. Orthopygia glaucinalis

I hope you don't mind me uploading so many but you guys have helped me out so much in the past that I thought that this was one way I could put something back.

Here are a few more.

1. Phtheochroa rugosana
2. Pyrausta aurata
3. White-shouldered House-moth - Endrosis sarcitrella

I have a few more but they are of some harder species so I don't know if you want them.

Here's some pretty distinctive and common day fliers which tend to crop up from time to time, especially the two "long horn" species.

1 Nemophora degeerella (female). Male has much longer antennae.
2 Adela reaumurella (female), again longer antennae in the male.
3 Eriocrania subpurpurella- a spring moth around 6mm in length.
4 Micropterix aruncella and 5 Micropterix calthella- both pretty common but can be easily overlooked due to their tiny size of around 5mm in length.

Charly.

White Plume Moth Pterophorus pentadactyla

Plumes are on the whole pretty tricky but this one is very distinctive. Smaller than most and the only one that is predominantly white. It also tends to show more of the wings than most.

The last shot shows another species in the typical plume stance with the wings held out to form a T shape. If you have one like this it is likely to be Emmelina monodactyla but there are several similar species so it's best to check.

More confusables

First two teeny ones

1) Monopsis crocicapitella
2) Plutella xylostella

both with a pink stripe down the "back", otherwise dark wings. Monopsis has a yellow head; and while Plutella's pink pattern forms elongated diamonds, Monopsis has an irregular pattern.

then venturing onto the thin ice of self-destruction... Two similar Pyralids

3) Dipleurina lacustrata
4) Eudonia mercurella

with the white lines on the latter makinga nice cross near the trailing edge, and the former often seeming to produce a black circle rather than an X.
(If you think I got this wrong, please tell me!!)


Best

Agapeta zoegana

We've caught this micro at least twice at Durlston - so I assume that it's fairly common. It's certainly very distinctive.

1. Monopis crocicapitella is difficult to separate from M. obviella, which has paler hindwings.
