Broken Barred Carpet

Common Marbled Carpet

Marbled Beauty

Phlyctaenia coronata

Ethmia quadrillella

Phtheochroa rugosana

Syndemis musculana

Pseudoswammerdamia combinella
Another warm night = another busy night with a lot of micros in comparison to the macros.....a few new year ticks, a few new garden ticks and 127 Argyresthia Trifasciata invading the trap(and that was just the ones I managed to find) meant the trap took a while to empty.
 I did manage to get a photo of a Common Marbled Carpet this time and another Carpet moth I'm not sure of plus the usual random micros, I'm pretty sure one is a Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix but the others I'm holding out on guessing at.
 The trap was out from 9:40pm till 3:30am

  1. Hi Ian
    Here to try and help again :)

    (??? Carpet) is a Broken-barred Carpet (never had one in the garden myself, so going going!)

    (Marbled White) is a Marbled Beauty, although i'm sure you already knew that.

    (????#1 micro) looks like Ethmia quadrillella, what do you think? quite a rare one, hard to tell from the flash in the pic.

    (???#2 micro) is Phtheochroa rugosana

    (Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix?) is Syndemis musculana

    (???#3 micro) is one I have calming down in my fridge at the moment, check out Pseudoswammerdamia combinella

    All the best

  2. They all look good to me Ben thanks, as for Pseudoswammerdamia combinella....that's easy for you to say! :0)
