Micro confirmation needed

Is this micro a Dichrorampha acuminatana? It certainly has the distinct grey and white band on cilia at termen.


  1. You may not be able to enlarge the pictureso my apologies. I have emailed Sam.

  2. Dichrorampha are a tricky group and I don't think it will be possible to make a definitive ID from the photo I'm afraid.

  3. Sam said it looked like Dichrorampha acuminatana with narrow wings and costal fold. The original photo (which I emailed him) could be enlarged to show the detail but it didn't seem possible on the blog.
