Micro

If you have seen a Butterfly or Moth you can't put a name to then post a photo of it here and we'll try and identify it for you.

Micro

Micros are unusual in my Kincardine garden trap in October but this one appeared last night. 7mm winglength and I've been puzzling over the possibility of Clepsis consimilana, which would be new for the garden. There's just a hint of a diagonal band at the midpoint in the wing, suggestive of a male. Any thoughts welcome.

Of course, it could just be a worn LBAM!

Hi Don

Yes, I would say so. The dark marks on the trailing edge particularly.

I would recommend ScottishMoths@groups.io or https://www.facebook.com/groups/eastscottishmoths/ as this forum is deprecated really!

Cheers
