  2. Oops! Looked quite different in the field. Steep learning curve these micros.

  3. Sorry I keep calling you Evan, Carolyn. Look for the two black dots just off the margin between dark and white. They are at 45 degrees to the kink in the line. In nubiferana they are directly above the kink. If you can't see them, then they are yet another species in this group - usually turbidana at this time.

  4. Many thanks Peter- very helpful. I'm trying to get my head round the commoner micros.
