I've been getting a lot of Marbled Orchard Tortrix in my trap recently but I think this one might be the Plum Tortrix. Can anybody confirm?

I can't decide whether the second moth is Mompha propinquella or Blastodacna hellerella. Neither looks exacly right. Advice please.

Replying to my own query, I now think the second moth is Epermenia chaerophyllella. Confirmation welcomed.
