Micromoths

I don’t normally ID micromoths, because I have enough trouble as it is with macromoths and they are big and bright and there’s only about 900 species, unlike micros, which are tiny, grey, need a microscope to identify correctly, and there’s thousands of species.

But some in the moth trap this morning looked lovely, so I got the internet to ID them for me:

 Lozotaenia forsterana
Lozotaenia forsterana

Eudonia lacustrata
Eudonia lacustrata

Also had a few of the usual – Light Emerald, Mottled Beauty and The Ghost, of which I always seem to only get females, no males – wonder what that is about?

The Ghost
