crumby pics of rare micros

A lunchtime search for Micros at Llyn Llech Owain CP on Thursday (18th June) produced a couple of uncommon Tortricids: both Ancylis diminutana and Grapholita (Cydia) tenebrosana have a single previous Carmarthenshire record.  The Ancylis was beaten from willow and differs from its relatives in being suffused with grey, which makes it look very dingy.  The Grapholita was beaten from rowan and was very dark brown with pale palps.  My camera struggled with both, so these are just 'record shots'.  Another uncommon Micro, Bucculatrix cidarella, was beaten from alder and was similarly poorly photographed :-)
