Micro help please!

Tried out my new battery trap a few nights ago, just for a few hours before the howling gales set in, and more in hope than expectation.  I had a few , so it works! Including this Plume moth that I am having difficulty with. It seems too early for most plumes. Thanks as always, Jane


  1. Over-wintered Brindled Plume, perhaps?

  2. I did wonder if it was that but not confident enough to suggest it!

  3. I'm not sure which has which English name, but this looks like the brown-toned Amblyptilia acanthadactyla rather than the greener A punctidactyla
