Llandaff - Garden - 31st August

A very warm and humid evening here in Llandaff, although yet another clear sky.

The trap was filled with Large Yellow Underwing, Lesser Broad Bordered Yellow Underwing and Square-spot Rustic. A few other regulars Light Emerald, Angle Shades, Copper Underwing, Yellow-barred Brindle and also a rather monochromatic looking Small Ranunculus? I think. At first I thought it was a Broad-barred White, as of no yellow/orange colouring. Flight time is a bit late also. Any thoughts welcome.
The best of the evening were three nice Tortrix moths. Some help needed but I think I may have them correct.

Cochylis molliculana?

Cochylis atricapitana?

Clavigesta purdeyi?

Small Ranunculus?
