Bryotropha
Hi All

Struggling with the numbers & species of moths recently

New for me is Cherry Fruit Moth so confirmation requested

Could the Brytropha be politella or desertella?

The other is a mystery. Help appreciated

Regards, Mike

Hi Mike
Your Bryotropha will be terrella. I have only ever found politella in the uplands in Cheshire.
I would agree with Cherry Fruit Moth.
