Micro 5 - We think it may be Eudonia lacustrata?

Micro 6 - We think it is a crambus but can't narrow it down further.

Micro 7 - We think this is a Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix

Micro 8 - This we think is a Red-barred Tortrix

Micro 9 - We are not sure if it is Anania coronata or Anania stachydalis

We had many micros in the trap last night and we have tried to identify them. Here are several that we would appreciate confirmation on our attempts or identification please.

Hi Tim

Micro's 1 & 5 = Eudonia lacustrata
Micro 2 = Crambus pascuella
Micro's 3 & 4 = Clepsis consimilana
Micro 6 = Garden Grass-veneer Chrysoteuchia culmella
Micro 7 = Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix Pandemis heparana
Micro 8 = Red-barred Tortrix Ditula angustiorana
Micro 9 = Anania coronata

Anania stachydalis is always worth considering, although it has yet to be found in NW England.

Regards
Steve

Hi Steve,
Thank you for your patience, comprehensive reply and clarification. We still struggle with micros so we found that information really helpful. We had lots more micros again today, so here are some more, one that we think we have identified, and again we would welcome your input.

Micro 1 - we believe it to be Lozotaeniodes formosana
