Micros from Caswell

41.003 Blastobasis lacticolella, possibly the same as the query below
Query 8mm. Perhaps same as above?

Here are a few photos from Monday night's trip to the cliffs of Caswell.
The Acrocercops brongniardella I potted thinking it would be an easy, striking, phyllonorycter but on a photo it obviously wasn't as it has big, curved palps but it did take some finding! Anyway, feeds on Holm Oak which is plentiful there so seems ok.
Ypsolopha nemorella feeds on the plentiful honeysuckle by the path.
Teleiodes sequax on Rock-rose. Reasonably confident on this one.
Scythris grandipennis. Plenty of  gorse for this one. 9mm long. Any other suggestions?
A query, 8mm long, which I suspect is a form of Blastobasis lacticolella so I've added one from the same night for comparison.
I'm still without my computer so can't check distributions in MapMate.

15.019 Acrocercops brongniardella

17.002 Ypsolopha nemorella

35.145 Teleiodes sequax

43.002 Scythris grandipennis
