Identified micros and questions

Postby Drtim55 on Tue Jul 09, 2019 7:59 pm

Hi,
We believe we have identified 3 lovely (....and easily identifiable) micros recently......and we have a couple we are not sure of so any help and clarification would be great.
Many thanks
Tim

Hi Tim,

1, 2 and three are correct, so well done with those

4 is Aleimma loeflingiana

5 I believe is Celypha lacunana

6. I'll pass on :-)

Cheers,
Steve

Hi Tim

No. 6 is probably Carpatolechia fugitivella but the details are not clear enough.
