Cors Fochno and Ynyslas

A little 'dusking' on the dunes at Ynyslas last night.
Mainly micros found of course but Green Carpet appears to be alive and well in this location as every larger moth Tony chased with his net (I wish I had taken a photo) turned out to be this species.
Cors Fochno was a little better than of late with seventeen species, an improvement in the temperature makes a difference.
The photographs below are of  species some find confusing.
Please note that the photos are not to scale.

Common Wave

Common White Wave

Scoparis pyralella
Scoparia ambigualis
Some S.ambigualis in this county can be the sandy brown form, nearer the colour of this S.pyralella.
The mark on the wing at two thirds is a C in pyralella and an X in ambigualis.
Having said this there will always be some that cannot be done!
