Epiblema sp.

Could anyone help me with this tortrix please? One of the Epiblema group i believe but i'm not sure if it's possible to say for sure which one? Unfortunately i can't remember exactly where i photographed it on sunday but i think it was in a hay meadow near Salem (possibly on knapweed...).


  1. It is indeed one of the tricky Epiblema species. Possibly costipunctana but I wouldn't be confident without dissection.
