Llangain moths

I hope some one can help identify these moths.  They were trapped on 22/07 in Llangain and I know it was a long time ago but back in July I was trapping about four times a week in different friends gardens, and got bogged down with work, so only now I'm going through all the photo's, and I'm trying to load onto the forms before I forget my own name.  Many thanks for all the help and great to meet a few of the local moth group last Saturday.

is this Agonopterix umbellana? 

 This one was very pale but I thought it maybe a Clay cause I caught about 4 others and this one was the same size and shape?


  1. First one is a Eucosma, probably hohenwartiana.

    Second one looks like another Epermenia aequidentellus!

    Third one is actually Acleris hastiana (I can see the similarity to Agonopterix umbellana, but the wings are broader and more pointy).

    And yes, the last one does look like a scruffy Clay.


  2. Thank you George, right or wrong I need to know, as I am getting my records straight for the end of the year. I have a lot more to id but I'm unsure whether to post them and bore everyone!
