  3. The two little black dots on a plain brown Tort are characteristic of the Clepsis - a useful one to learn.

  4. Thanks both - I just couldn't understand why I couldn't find that 'moth' - the fact that it is a caddisfly explains why!

  6. Yes indeed, but I was lucky this time (my blog of 1 July, same caddis), I couldn't see its like in any of the moth books so assumed that it must have been a caddis.

  7. Thanks Steve and Chris - I feel slightly less foolish now - but only marginally!
