Micro - help needed

I think this looks like a Grapholita tenebrosana but it is a bit worn and I didn't get a photo showing the labial palps.  However, I think the coloration and weak markings match the description of it.  Any thoughts?

  1. Did you see the palps Sarah? There is just one on record, in 1962 from a reliable source and at Gwbert.

  2. Hi Ina. Unfortunately all I could manage to see is recorded in the photos above.

  3. Mmm, I think it's one you needed to keep so I could take a closer look.

  4. Peter, do you think it's a choice between G. tenebrosana and G. funebrana, or is there some other micro I needed to consider?
