Cromwell Bottom torts.

About a month ago I paid a visit to Cromwell Bottom and, among other things I collected a few larvae feeding on Dog Rose at Tag meadow. They were pretty random choices so I didn't expect too much, over the last couple of days the first two have emerged. Surprisingly they are both new species to me - all though not that uncommon. Above, Notocelia rosaecolana and below, Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix :-)

Difficult to know which names to use sometimes. I'm trying to go with those in the new micro guide. Probably best to put the old name in brackets.
