Rhoose Point

Any thoughts on this?  The antennae are approx 4x the length of the body, and the wingspan about 20mm.  I can't see anything like it in Adelidae the micro field guide, which makes me think it might not be a moth!


  1. Although it doesn't look much like the illustration in the micro field guide, it does more closely resemble the illustration of Nemophora degeerella in The Moths and Butterflies of Great Britain and Ireland.

  2. I agree with that diagnosis; a similar pic on the UK Moths website.

  3. Thanks all. That's another new for the garden!
