Hi Andy
Do you have a size of the moth ?

AndyC said...

10mm.

Hi Andy
Bit of a sod this one but I thought Charly might have it by now. I only have 2 suggestions so far Light Brown Apple Moth in one of its variations or more likely I think is 1029 Eana osseana ? Not a species I am familiar with though.

AndyC said...

Thanks paul,I was looking at UKmoths and came up with 1029 as a possibility or 1024.Tricky one.??

Hi Andy
I would favour 1029 myself as Bradley states that its mainly a grey or greyish brown base colour to 1024.

I think its either post it on UK Micros or give it the snip test. To be honest both species seem to be resonably common so its i you want to bother or not.

Definitely not LBAM. What struck me was the size of it's palps, they luck quite large.If you don't have any side shots I can post it on BGM and see what Mike or Harri make of it?

charlie streets said...

Does anyone know if there are any previous Calderdale records of Denisia similella or Eriocrania salopiella?

AndyC said...

Stick it on BGM please charlie,will cheque for those two sp.

AndyC said...

Denisia similella and Cochylis nana I carnt find recors for but E.salopiella paul and Ian found at Shibden vally

AndyC said...

1024 ,Light Grey tortrix,I have found a pic of the larvae and it is looking good for this species.?

charlie streets said...

I didn't realise you had a description/photo of the larva - crucial with difficult species.

Mike Wall reckons it's a definite cnephasia sp. but it needs dissection to be sure of species.

AndyC said...

Thanks Charlie,Ive added apoor photo of larvae.I might have a go at the chop.

At some point today I will look through Bradley for the larval description and email it to you.
