Acleris

I netted this Acleris in the marshy bit of our field this afternoon.  It was disturbed from Filipendula and resembles Acleris sheperdana pretty closely, but this is a difficult genus and I have a nasty feeling I'll need to check its genitalia to confirm what would be a first for Wales.
 
 
Other species caught included Acleris emargana, Hypatima rhomboidella, Ypsolopha parenthesella, Epinotia nisella and 3 spp of Phyllonorycter.  Most of those are unlikely to be caught elsewhere in Carms during NMN I'm guessing!
