A Micro for ID

We found this Tortrix [FL 10mm] on our kitchen window last night and would appreciate help with identification.

  1. Did you consider Eucosma Cana? Yours is a lot darker than that shown in Sterling and Parsons but have a look at some of the images on the web.

  2. Thanks Tony. It looks a good match to me. The picture in Sterling & Parsons suggests a smaller moth but I note its length can vary from 7 to 11mm.
