Some micros from earlier this year

Postby A_Neal on Thu Nov 12, 2020 8:39 pm

Hi all,

I've found a few micros I've never got round to identifying. Any help would be appreciated.

1) Not sure - 15th August

Hi Alex,
The last one looks to me like Tachystola acroxantha.

Hi Alex,

I have a few suggestions for you to think about, but they are only suggestions.

1. Cochylimorpha straminea
2. agree with your ID, but not sure of species
3. I think you are correct
4. I think Leek Moth Acrolepiopsis assectella
5. agree, but dissection probably required
6. Sterling and Parsons mention a dark form of Rhomboid Tortrix, and I think that is what it is.

Some suggestions to think about anyway.

Mel.

Hi Mel,

Thanks for the ideas about the identifications.

I’ve had a look on google and in my books and unless anyone else has got another identification of number 4 or 6 I shall be calling them a Leek Moth and a Rhomboid Tortrix.

Many thanks,
Alex
