Hi I'm looking to confirm the identification of these moths. The micros are a bit worn. Caught yesterday at VC100, Isle of Bute.

1. 49.068 Acleris maccana
2. 63.033 Udea lutealis
3. 70.098 Dark Marbled Carpet

Thanks in advance

Dougie

Think you're correct on the last two; find Acleris species confusing as some species are so variable!
