Cool struggling with these

The micro seemed a bit small for a Hedya species. Any suggestions?

After spending a lot of time scrutinising pugs recently, the second pic looks good for Mottled Pug.

I'm rubbish at pugs but I'd go for Common, Mottled, Common for those three. The tort looks like Hedya pruniana - how small was it?

Hi, David,
The micro was about 7mm long.
Thanks (and to Jonathan) for pug pointers.
Ken

(Sounds as if you've been in Nigeria, Jonathan!)

Close! I was in Cameroon in March - the Jos Plateau Indigobird was a first for the country

The new mothing obsession arose out of that trip as there were two birders with me who are also very into moths. I was 'persuaded' to join their ranks!

! My Nigerian bird list is very short after a visit there in 1980 - conditions made birdwatching pretty limited but I saw a few nice species.
Didn't bother with moths in those days.
