Fondling little lepidoptera

I've been taking a look at the micro moths that have been coming to the MV. Regular visitors to this site may recall that I blow hot-and-cold with these smaller moths (but then again I'm sure that you've got more important things to remember than whether or not I fondle little lepidoptera).

I have added another three species to the garden list, all shown below. I won't bore you with the other photographs that are housed in a folder called 'Mystery'. When I have time, most probably in deepest December, I may revisit them...

Acleris forsskaleana

Acleris logiana

Ypononeuta evonymella

That's three nice micros I would like to have gracing my trap this evening.

I'm getting quite a few evonymella at the moment Andrew, so you must be in with a chance as they seem to be popping up all over the place.
