Gillian's 60w Robinson

Gill's trap did a good job for me (its new owner)last night: 83 moths, 31 sp of macros.
Light Arches was a new one for me I think.
12 Peppered, 7 Marbled white spots, and 7 white ermines were the most numerous.
This Green silver lines is a favourite for the beautiful balance of colours.
Any help with this one?  Its a bit worn. Wing length 9mm.

  1. With it's "snout" it's a crambid and with the time of year, it is almost certainly Chrysoteucha culmella

  3. Peter, its got costal stripes and the outer x-line is absent. Is it all down to the two spots and pale line down the termen?

  5. Liz, I'm pretty sure it's a Bactra sp. (Tortricidae), probably lancealana (generally common wherever rushes grow).

    Hope you can forgive an interloper from Glamorgan posting on the blog!
