Creigiau - GMS Thursday night

55 moths of 35 species last night with 2 new for the year - Light Emerald & Poplar Hawkmoth. Two micros are evading ID - an orange-ish tortrix and another non-descript little brown job with white palps. Grateful if anyone can ID these for me.


  1. Hi Howard, have you considered Clepsis consimilana (female) - very plain tortrix species! Kind Regards, Mike.

  2. And the other might be a Eucosma but it's pretty worn.

  3. Apologies for the delayed response - a damp week walking on the Cornish coast.

    Thanks Mike - that looks pretty similar.

    Thanks George - another one for the anon micro box.
