A Query ID

Anybody got any thoughts on this? I thought Mompha sturnipennella/subbistrigella at first but the photo doesn't bear this out.
Nice to see a Chestnut-coloured Carpet on the site. I can see now that what I thought might be one is just a very dark, small Spruce Carpet.
Query. approx. 7mm long


  1. Bears a resemblance to Teleiodes wagae on UK Moths, bu not looked in book

  2. Certainly a Gelechiid. Exotelia dodecella?

  3. Many thanks Barry and Dave. I have looked at dodecella on the Gelechid Recording site and it certainly looks close. I will send it to Steve Palmer for his opinion.
