  1. Hi Tony, to be certain of notana rather than ferrugana the moth needs chopping I'm afraid. If you still have it contact me off group. Your Mompha id is correct. Your Scoparid is big enough to be subfusca and I agree with your inquinatella. It's been a vintage year for Marasmarcha lunaedactyla, it's turned up everywhere here this year.
