Wyre Forest micros

A couple of hours daytime netting along the pipeline ride produced a handful of micros, some of which are photographed below.
I was pleased to finally catch up with Phyllonorycter trifasciella after failing to rear adults from the mines I collected last year. I had also previously recorded a dead specimen found on my lounge windowsill a few years back but never seen a live one.
Epiblema scutulana is supposedly common but I have only recorded it once before, also in Wyre, in 2007.
