December Moths and Mini Micros

A modest catch last night from two traps,  MV and small actinic, totalling 14 moths: 3 Epirrita sp., 2 Silver Ys, 2 December Moths, one each of Pine, Common Marbled and Red-green Carpets, one Flounced Chestnut, an unidentifiable noctuid and a minute micro (photos attached).  If anyone can tell me the identity of the latter I shall be very grateful, but there's not much to go on!

I've added a 'side-on' photo, not very good but it's the best I could do with such a small subject.  I could hardly see the beggar, let alone photograph it!

  1. Did you get a side photo of the micro Chris? If so, may be worth adding to the blog.

    1. I did try very hard to get a side view but the beggar wouldn't keep still. There's one photo that might help, but do I have to write a new blog to post it or can I add it to the existing? If so, how? (forgive my ignorance!)

  2. Chris... just click on the pencil symbol. It will then [give a few seconds or so] revert to draft or whatever it`s called. You then can change/correct text or insert photos, just as if it was a new post. Once finished, you click on `update` which will be on a bar to the approx top right, and `hey presto`.
    Regards - Ian.

    1. Thanks Ian, I often wondered what the pencil symbol was for! Followed your instructions to the letter and the photo was loaded, for what it's worth.
      I don't think that there will be many moth traps out tomorrow night!!
