Rhoose Point

Here's a Buff-tip from the weekend that I didn't post earlier...

And a few I'm not sure about. If anyone can help, I would be grateful as usual!

I've tentatively id'd this as a Small Fan-footed Wave?

This may be an Acleris, but I'm not sure which...

This may be a Crambus pasculella?

And finally, despite the colouration and v long antennae, I haven't been able to put a name to this chap....


  1. Carcina quercana (B&F658). Fairly common throughout VC41.

  2. Carcina quercana is one that often catches people out as it looks like a Tortrix, but is infact an Oecohporid. And your Acleris is another Oecophorid - Agonopterix nervosa. The other two are both right.

  3. Thank you both. I was indeed looking for a Tortrix rather than an Oecophorid with the C quercana! Still, 2 out of 4 is better than none...
