A Trio of Tineids

          There is quite a lot of dead wood in our garden, either for wildlife habitat or for fuel and a couple of nights ago I noticed a couple of dozen Cork Moths around one log pile so I put a 15 watt actinic close by to see how many I would catch by morning. Well there wasn't a single cloacella in the trap when I checked the next day but I did have three other Tineids to photograph.
           Having decided on the snappy title for the post I was dismayed when my third subject escaped before I had managed a decent shot - 'A Duo of Tineids' was no good at all. Fortunately the escapee  was discovered and recaptured later in the day and my trio of images completed.
