Rhoose Point

Trapped on the 1st May.  12 species altogether including White-pinion Spotted, Shuttle-Shaped Dart and Coleophora albicosta.  There were also several photos below for ones that I haven't been able to pin down definitively... Can anyone help with these?

Cydia ulicetana?
Possibly a Foxglove Pug?  Wingspan about an inch

No idea!

Possibly Cochylimorpha straminea?


  1. 1: Agree with C ulicetana.

    2: I think it's Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpet, but I'm not 100% sure it's not Red TSC.

    3 & 4: It's a Dichrorampha, possibly acuminatana but these are tricky and it would probably need dissecting to be sure.

    5: Agree with C straminea.

    1. Many thanks for taking the time to look at this George. Pleased I got a couple right, but a bit surprised I'm getting Pugs and Carpets mixed up! Think it's because it's a very light coloured specimen compared to the pics I can find online. At least that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

  2. For what it's worth, I agree with George on all counts.
