Cromwell Bottom micros.


The micros I took home to ID were as follows:
2x 518 Coleophora mayrella
2x 1201 Eucosma cana
2x 640 Batia lunaris
1x Scoparia ambigualis
1x Cydia splendana
1x Bryotropha affinis
1x Batrachedra praeangusta

Plus two to ID.

The mystery micro/caddisfly netted beforehand was indeed a caddisfly.

An enjoyable, calm, warm night with loads of moths and no mossies or midges.

Batia lunaris - forewing 5mm.

Coleophora mayrella - showing the thickly scaled base to the antennae.

Cydia splendana - all three micros new to me plus umpteen new macros.
