2 more tiny micros

Postby Tim_Ward on Sat Jul 17, 2021 9:54 pm

I'm puzzled by 2 tiny micros in my trap this week, both 3.5 - 4 mm wing length. The one is very well marked but doesn't correspond to anything in the book. The other is less well marked. I wondered if these might be Argyresthia. Any pointers in the right direction would be welcome before I attempt dissection.
Thanks as always, Tim

Maybe Argyresthia cupressella & Argyresthia dilectella

Thanks Steve. Now the attempt to dissect them!
