Lampronia sp.?

Thursday night was also my best catch of the year so far, including Cork Moth, Bordered Straw, Rush Veneer, Epinotia bilunana, Poplar Grey and Alder Moth all new for the garden.

 On Friday evening I netted this micro, which I am inclined to claim as Lampronia morosa; can anyone confirm or refute?

FW 6mm
Thanks

  1. Looks like L.morosa to me, though it isn't a specie I am familiar with I don't think there is anything similar. Do you still have it Simon? This would be a first for vc46.

  2. I am hoping you kept it Simon.

  3. Sorry, thought I would get my wrists slapped if I kept something that scarce.
