Two rolls, two moths

Back in May I collected this shoot of Grey Poplar with two rolled leaves from Bute Park.

A moth has emerged from each roll in the last few days and surprisingly they were two different species: Gypsonoma dealbana and Anacampsis populella. I didn't get a pic of the Anacampsis but posted one recently on the Gwent blog from a rolled sallow leaf collected at Magor Marsh.

Gypsonoma dealbana
