Another Shed Moth

The potting shed window has produced another unfamiliar micro.  Its mottled brown/white/black wing colouration has proved extraordinarily difficult to photograph but I've done my best;

The key features seem to be the raise tuft on the thorax, triangular striated white mark on the dorsum and black marks mid-forewing and closer to the termen.  Forewing length 5.5mm.  Seems good for the Glyphipterigid Acrolepia autumnitella, but I could be wrong - any alternative suggestions out there?


  1. I agree, and its a known hibernating species. Not many Carms records.

  2. Thanks Sam, I can let it go then. Not that it will be very happy to be released outside, it's cold and damp here!

  3. Wow! It's amazing.You can try double glazing glass shed and windows with it. For everest double glazing prices for turn window you too can take help by an agent.
