Carmel Nature Reserve

Plenty of Micropterix calthella around on friday and also this little micro - managed to get a bad phone photo but am struggling without Chris Manley's photo guide (it's in the office and I'm stranded at home..). Is it one of the Bactra sp.?


  1. When I first saw the photo I thought it was Silver Hook! But presumably a lot smaller than that, and just one of those well marked Bactra sp (likely lancealana).

  2. No, sadly a bit small for that I think! Thanks George.
