I HAVE NOW REACHED THE POINT WHERE HELP IS NEEDED !



Two micros were trapped which I cant identify. The top picture was taken in torchlight last night as it was on the perspex and the flash "x-rayed" it. Unfortunately it had done a runner before the morning so no daylight picture was possible. wingspan under 20mm



The middle and bottom pictures show two separate moths of this species, and I will have a stab and say they look like DIURNEA FAGELLA to me, but I stand to be corrected. wing length about 13mm
IDENTIFICATIONS NOW CONFIRMED AS (top) Double-striped Pug and Diurnea fagella......many thanks to Andy & Melissa
