These four micros are small and not in good condition. We are not sure if ID is possible but second opinions are always useful. Thanks in anticipation Bob & Helen

Have a look at Lobesia abscisana for your first, B will be Holly Tortrix, C is Batrachedra praeangusta and I can't get further than a Coleophora species for D.

Steve, Bob & I really appreciate your help and encouragement. We have learnt so much and feel much more confident about micros but it is good know there is always some help for the small less well known ones. Just need some help with pugs now! Take care. Bob & Helen
