A blog for moth enthusiasts in and around Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
Two of the 4 species are smaller: schuetzeella and simplicella with wingspans around 22-24mm. Simplicella is a very grey moth and also the sub-terminal lines differ between the two species, so for me the favourite is schuetzeella based on this, but of course the angle of photo isn't perfect to see this so well. If you still have the moth I can mail you the relevant page from Slamka Pyraloidea of Central Europe.
Thanks Peter. The moth has been kindly looked at by Oliver and it is a small well marked female D simplicella
