Had a very pleasant and informative walk around Norland moor yesterday with the Halifax Scientific Society. As usual, micros were few and far between on the higher part of the moor - infact I only saw three all day, one Agapeta hamana, the other two being new ones to me :-)
Eupoecilia angustana - larvae feed on flowers and seeds of Heather amongst other plants. A titchy tort at 6mm in length.
Epinotia trigonella at the base of a birch tree - the larvae feed on the leaves. Much larger than the previous species at 10mm.
Anyone know this one - should be easy. About 40 mm long, found scurrying across the towpath at Salterhebble and is now feeding on Ribwort Plantain...........
