Confirmations and ID needed.

Postby bobhelencoan on Sat Aug 15, 2020 2:59 pm

Good night Thursday over 70 species but the inevitable ID queries. The down pour on Wednesday night seems to have washed a few of the micros!
A washed cloaked minor?
Oak nycteoline?
Dichrorampha species ?
Bactra lancealana?
Cydia splendana ( dark form) ?

Hi Bob & Helen
Your photo of Bactra lanceolana is not clear enough for me but your others are correct.

Bactra lancealana is correct and the Dichrorampha is a male alpinana.
