Micros for iD

Postby bobhelencoan on Wed Jul 21, 2021 11:06 am

Four micros we can't ID . We have some thought but would appreciate other opinions. Two views of each shown. 5mm squared paper. We were a bit overloaded with moths to ID and now we feel moth blind!
1. Tortrix cyclamen or rhomboid??
2.Endothenia gentianaeana or oblongana?
3. Argyresthia bennetella or priniella?
4. Notocelia trimaculata?
Any help most appreciated Bob & Helen

Your first one will be Acleris ferrugana/notana, most likely the former off your oak tree.
If your Endothenia is a male and you can see the hindwing and the hindwing is white, it will be Endothenia marginana.
