Help needed on a micro moth

I found this micro moth today on the coastal path from Pwllgwaelod, Pembrokeshire (sorry it wasn't in Ceredigion, Ina).  I think it looks like Hysterophora maculosana but it was very worn and I am wondering whether there are any other micro moths that I should be considering?


  1. It looks ok to me Sarah. Was it in/near woodland with Bluebells? Best to run it past Robin Taylor though as it's his county.
    I wish it was in Ceredigion, we only have one record and I have looked for it in the past...better start looking again I think.

  2. Thanks Ina. I'll email Robin and get him to take a look too.

  3. Update: confirmed by Robin by email - Thanks.
