A Modest Start to the Mothing Year

Relatively benign conditions last evening prompted me to bring the MV trap out of hibernation, but the results were modest compared to some reports of late - 33 moths of 12 species - seasonal ones apart from one (possibly), a mini-micro which turned up in my wood shed.  Otherwise the usual mix of Quakers, Early Thorns, Oak and Brindled Beauties, and Early Greys.  Plus the first Pug of the year, which is a Brindled one I think.  The micro looks as though it should be a Mompha sp., but perhaps someone might be able to be more specific?

Possible Mompha sp.
