Great photo for such a tiny moth Brian.They seem to be thriving once they get a foothold, although I've not seen one for 3 years now, I'm obviously not hanging around the right trees!

I am certain Ian Kimber, Sue and I found this species on Leylandi hedges near Ripponden on the old railway track ? I do not have the record in MM but I am certain we found it as Ian tapped it out of Leylandi hedge near the start of the track. i don't see why it would not be on other leylandi hedges in Calderdale as they are very widesread.
