Pete, these off top of my head. Will do bit of research on the ones I cant do.1=Vestal,2=?3=White Speck4=Large Yellow Underwing and ? Turnip5=White Speck x26=Micro (!)7=? Chilo Phragmitella8=? Monopsis sp9=E postvittana?10=?11=Pyrale sp12= same as 2?13=White Speck + ? worn White SpeckCheers
Cheers Paul,A lot of them look darker than back home? They have a sooty look to them.
2 & 12 look interesting, could be a macro or a Pyrale (was thinking licarsisalis but doesn't look right resting posture)4 has a Pearly Underwing not a Turnip (dark, with a pale thoracic crest)6 a Tortricid probably Rhopobota naevana or perhaps Crocidosema plebejana7 looks more like Haimbachia cicatricella than Chilo because of short palps8 Monopis imella (yellow costal streak) or something non-British11 Pempeliella dilutella or more likely something non-BritishI agree with Bomber's macros. Did you get anything else, eg Wainscot spp?Sam Bryo
Hi Sam,No Wainscots that I recognised. Thanks for the ids. I've put some more up on a new post-one very distinctive one that Darryl found in the woods.Thanks again chapsPeter
Hi all,As mentioned in the comment for the later post, I've found a checklist; using Bomber and Sam's comments as a guide and comparing them to the checklist, photos, etc., my best guesses are: 1. Vestal2. Galgula partita Wedgling Moth3. White Speck4. Large Yellow Underwing & Turnip Moth or Pearly Underwing5. White Speck6. possibly Crocidosema plebejana or Rhopobota naevana7. possibly Bactra lancealana8. possibly Monopis crocicapitella9. Epiphyas postvittana10. Galgula partita Wedgling Moth11. no idea (a crambid or pyralid)12. Galgula partita Wedgling Moth13. White SpeckFeel free to correct anything (this comment or the other), moths are *not* my main thing, as you can probably tell.Peter, could you number the photos in the original blog posts? Then we can email the author of the checklist, refer him to specific images and get him to look at any that remain possibles/probables.
