Micros for ID

Postby bobhelencoan on Tue Jun 22, 2021 1:32 pm

Wondered if their was any chance of identification of two tiny micros, squares are 5mm. Thought one UKN A might be an Ectodemia perhaps subbimaculella.
Last night had UKN C ( side and top photos) a Clepsis??
Finally we think he have hatched a Pammene spiniana from blackthorn debris collected 15th April. Look very like the one Steve Hind dissected for us last year.
Any comments much appreciated. Bob & Helen
