I switched my trap position to the front step last night in honour of national moth week. The majority of moths in the trap were micros - mostly Garden Grass veneer. However there were a number of tricky tortrixes.
Firstly this strongly marked and contrasty Bud Moth.
Then a new moth for me, which I first took to be an Ancylis but realised was actually Willow Tortrix. It amazes me this is my first of this species as willows are ubiquitous here.
Next came a small, dark micro, with an incipient bump behind its head. I think it's an Endothenia and it looks like Oblongana, any ideas?
Last but no means least, I puzzled over this specimen, wondering if it was an unusually marked Light Brown Apple or Garden Rose Tortrix but the shape just didn't seem quite right.
