A couple of micro's for the local list

Neither of these are uncommon moths but I have not posted them previously. 
The Red-barred Tortrix is common around gardens, this is a males which is smaller but more brightly coloured than the male.
Teleoides vulgella is less common, not sure how widespread it is in Derbyshire, the host plants are Hawthorn and Blackthorn, so plenty of those around.

Red-barred Tortrix, Ditula angustiorana
Teleoides vulgella 


  1. Teleiodes vulgella is regular in my Ripley garden

  2. That's interesting Steve. There is no recent distribution information for micro moths in Derbyshire so I'm reliant on the Butterflies and Moths of Derbyshire published by the Derbyshire Entomological Society in the late 1980's and there have been a lot of changes since then.
