Hi,

Has anyone got any thoughts on these. I've had a go as always.

1) Scoparia sp.

2) Scoparia pyralella

3 & 4) Celypha sp.

5) Brown House Moth

Many thanks,

Tom

Just checked yours, and yes it does. That was the ID I was leaning towards as well.

Thanks Andy

3. agree celypha lacunana
4. Maybe a plain example of Epiphyas postvittana, or Clepsis Consimilana

Thanks Rosaria,

I've had quite a few Epiphyas posvittana in the garden so you might be right, usually they're much more obvious, and the size difference between male and female is striking.

At first I thought, no way are 1 & 2 the same, but now I think you might be right on that!

Cheers,

Tom
