Phyllonocrycter query

Only 2 moths last night - a Red-green Carpet in the trap and, what I think is, a Phyllonocrycter messaniella on a nearby window. This would be a new moth for me so grateful for confirmation or correction.

The painful so-and-so wouldn't come out of the pot so I struggled to get a side view. Hopefully it will have settled down by the time I try again.


  1. Yes, messanniella. Not too many other options this late in the year. I had 8 species on Friday night so I'm surprised you had so few - you usually get lots more than me.

  2. Thanks George.

    Moth wise - the garden has been very quiet lately. But ... still seeing new moths so I can't really complain.
