2 Micros from 08.

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.

Not sure about the first one, but the second looks like Pammene aurana.

Mark Young tells me:
It is difficult to get the scale on the first but I am assuming it was pretty small. It is Glyphipterix aimpliciella [simpliciella], an abundant moth that feeds on Dactylus.

Hi,
Yes, very small...thankyou so much for those ID's...I have trailed through UK Moths website several times in vain trying to ID these 2....so thankyou...The micros are few and far between just now, but becoming more active I should hope by about the turn of the month. I photographed the Glyphipterix while waiting for a chance to photograph one of there predators, the Large Red Damselfly. No Large Reds around yet, ...all the ponds and temporary wetlands around here have totally dried up, what with this weather...no serious rain in about 6 weeks now.
My Thanks to Mark Young and yourself.
Cheers IAC.
