Best night but we need help with some moths

Postby bobhelencoan on Fri Jul 09, 2021 2:54 pm

276 moth 87 species. Highlights female Oak eggar and our first ever Peach blossom. Not sure if macro is Common rustic, two images shown.
Two coleophora, a dark and a distinctly lined specimen. Is ID possible for the marked one?

Finally a dark micro. Epinota family? We don't really have any idea.
Ideas appreciated. Bob & Helen

How about Dusky Brocade rather than Common Rustic ?
Tortrix will be Zeiraphera isertana
The Coleophora will need dissecting

Many thanks Steve. Dusky brocade would be new moth for us. Had thought about the micro being another dark Zierphera insertana last night. Always seems to catch us out.
Have kept the pale coleophora. Bob & Helen
