3 Tortrix. (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

Help needed with 3 Tortrix for identification or correction.

1. Endothenia quadrimaculana 1104
2. Alceris aspersana 1043
3. ?

Really don't have any idea about 3. I've looked through a couple of online sites and am unable to match it with anything.

Very grateful for any help.

Hi Brian, thanks for that. I get so used to seeing postvittana in my trap that i dont even tend to look at them properly & to be honest wasnt even aware of aspersana. I probably let a load of them go the other day. Shame on me. As they say a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing !

Thanks to all for the help, much appreciated.

I had considered Acleris forsskaleana for number 3 but it was more heavily marked than some of the examples online, it did mention the markings were variable though.

Thanks again.
