Tiny micro, can it be identified?

Postby bobhelencoan on Sat Aug 21, 2021 5:36 pm

We have not been putting the trap out but have found white ermine and peppered moth larvae. A cocoon found on hawthorn has today produced a nice male vapourer moth. On our hazel tree we found two Phyllonorycter coryli moths plus a tiny micro we can't name. The hazel tree is close to a hawthorn hedge and under an oak tree. Any help with even species would be helpful . Thanks Bob & Helen
