Highlight Park Lunar-spotted Pinion / Micro help

Some new moths for us - we had two Lunar-spotted Pinion on separate nights over the weekend. There are a few Elm trees behind the back fence so suspect that'll be where they originate from.

Then I plucked this teeny tiny tortrix off the trap last night. Any help with ID appreciated, is it a Pammene sp.?


  1. Well done on the Pinion Stephen, we saw one at the moth morning in Parc slip yesterday. I'm not sure on that micro, they an be devilishly difficult and even experience over time doesn't make it easy! Can I recommend you join the UK Micro moth forum on Facebook - I find it very helpful.

  2. Grapholita janthinana for the tortricid.
