Ypsolopha nemorella and others

Only 35 species last night, including 14 micros. My first Gold Triangle escaped before I could take a photo, but Ypsolopha nemorella almost made up for it:
Ypsolopha nemorella
Also Bryotropha domestica and affinis, Elachista argentella, Phycitodes binaevella, Crocidosema plebejana,and this Swammerdamia sp. (possibly caesiella?):

 Other recent micros include Thistle Ermine and this Tinea sp. which has me stumped:

  1. Hi Simon, take care with the Bryotrophas, they are surprisingly tricky. Don't be worried by potting them up for me later. Your Swammerdamia looks most like nebulella, but I always chop these to be sure. As for the Tineid, I'm hoping Ina recognises it, because I don't from the photo. Another one for me later perhaps.

  2. I am happy with B.domestica.
    B.affinis should be do-able by you, but if you still have it that would be good.
    There are a few Swammerdamia sp that may fit the photo, so ?
    And finally Tinea sp. I have not a clue, too many or not enough spots for any I know of. Hope you kept it Simon.

  3. Thanks both. I have kept the Tinea and Swammerdamia for you, but only photos of the Bryotrophas.
