I netted the two individuals (shown below) while walking the dogs this afternoon. We were on the edge of a hay meadow, next to an unruly mixed hedge, near our wetland. My guess is that perhaps they may be Cnephasia sp., but I've no experience of these. I realise that they probably cannot be narrowed down to species, if they are of the genus I've suggested - I would be happy to settle for that. Or are they something completely different that I have overlooked? Your thoughts would be very much appreciated.
