Pammene spiniana Dodford.....Update

I recently posted some photos of this moth caught in my garden trap seeking ID confirmation.

Oliver Wadsworth kindly collected the specimen and has carried out a gen det and it is confimed as a male Pammene spiniana.

This is only the 3rd Worcestershire record and the first since 1987 so I am very chuffed to have spotted it and my thanks go out to Oliver.

Needless to say I am being extra vigilant with my micros now!
