Micros galore

A good week for micros in the garden trap: Rush veneer, Rusty dot pearl, Zelleria hepariella, Cedestis subfasciella, Swammerdamia caesiella, Carcina quercana, Oegoconia quadripuncta. Among the macros Poplar Hawkmoth, Small Blood-vein and Iron Prominent.

Cedestis subfasciella   
Also confirmation from Peter of Cydia nigricana, Dichrorampha alpinana and a surprise in the form of Dichrorampha aeratana (see my post of 22nd May), as well as Coleophora paripennella, C. caespititiella and Phycitodes saxicola seen earlier in the year.

And one micro still to identify from Thursday:

  1. Are you confident about caesiella and quadripuncta Simon? Hopefully they are in the next batch for me. Not sure about the micro you posted.

    1. caesiella - fairly (I have a good photo); quadripuncta - best guess based on one of your previous determinations here. The pictured micro will be in the next batch!

  2. Hi Simon, your Coleophora otidipennella from the last batch is a vc46 first. Keep 'em coming!!

    1. Sorry, the Coleophora otidipennella has a dot on the map but no detail, so it is the first modern record. The same applies to Cedestis subfasciella. So my "Keep 'em coming" comment still applies!
