Moths at Saron, Llandysul

I have been trapping regularly but mainly species caught regularly before. Tuesday night was a bumper catch with 91 species of macro and at least 20 species of micro (several flew away before ID'ing). New for me here was a Bordered White (we have a conifer woodland currently under continuous management to deciduous but will leave several conifers) and Grass Emerald.

Having gone through Manley's Sterling et al and the Berkshire Gide  several times I am struggling with these micros so if anyone can help this would be much appreciated. Thanks.
