Help Please?

Eucosma conterminana, a site first.

A proper gripper this. Probably Bactra lacteana with those black sub-apical streaks, but the other one cant be ruled out without Gen Det. I released it before I knew the status....

Has anyone got a clue? If so please help... Both caught on Monday night, I think may be different species?

[Mark, thanks for the advice].


  1. Tort 1 looks a good contender for Eucosma conterminana, Tort 2 doesn't ring any bells at all!

  2. Maybe a form of Bactra lacteana? Gen det.
