Last night's trap

Set the trap again last night at my parents place just outside of Salem (a mile or so away from last week's location); a location where I've trapped before but not for a couple of years. Decent haul of 83 moths of 32 species. My highlights were garden tigers, a cinnabar, a sharp-angled peacock, a (standard) burnished brass and a couple of brussels lace (new for me). Top scorers were flame (12), double line (10) and clouded border (9).
I had trouble with a couple of them though - a bit of help required please! Is this uncertain or rustic?

And this wainscot. Is it a striped? Smoky?

Thanks!

    I have added some info regarding Rustics ID to the "Resources" section which may help.

  3. The Wainscot is Striped - relatively broad wings for the group.

  4. Great thanks for that Sam - I was leaning that way having done some more checking today so thanks for the confirmation.
