Micros id help

We would like some help to identify these two micros. The larger one is a Crambid but which one. It has a wing length of 10mm. We think it may be Eudonia truncicolella but the shape looks too narrow.
The smaller one has a wing length of 3mm and looks like an Elachistid. I apologise for the quality of the photo but I had to be quick for fear of losing it.

Crambid

Elachistid

  1. Hi Tony,
    I think your Crambid is Scoparia ambigualis and your Elachistid is more likely a Nepticulid, that one I'd have to chop to identify to species level and even then only if it's a male. If you still have it, let me know off group.
