    Many thanks, aeshna5. All three were (eventually!) accepted as Aphelia viburnana. Paul

    Orange-coloured Tortrix (?) ID (Cumbria, UK)

    That's an interesting suggestion, aeshna5, as there were two other moths I photographed at the same location, and I did think that they were perhaps Aphelia viburnana, but it never struck me that all three might be the same species!

    Orange-coloured Tortrix (?) ID (Cumbria, UK)

    Hello I found this moth (about 12mm long) yesterday on a heath near Carlisle. I'm guessing that it's a tortrix of some sort, but I can't find a decent match in either my micro or macro field guides. Any suggestions? Thanks Paul
