Ynyslas Micros

Unsure of these two moths flying in the dunes this afternoon:

The fuzzy one is probably Crambus lathoniellus, although we were tempted by C.  ericella.

The grey one might be Cydia microgrammana.

Also Speckled Yellow, Cinnabars, Yellow Shell, and a Mother Shipton.

  1. Hi Simon, yes that's lathionellus. The other looks a bit like Cydia ulicetana

  2. Thanks Peter. I had looked at C. ulicetana but discounted it as there was no gorse around, but (I think) plenty of restharrow.
