Down to 8c last night so just 13 species this morning with A. straminella new for the year. However, with help, I've identified a tortrix from the 13th of this month as Ancylis achatana which is new for the garden. Yesteday there was a very dark mystery pyralid with wing length about 12mm.I would be grateful for any suggestions-see below.

Further note:

 It seems after further discussion that the tortrix below is Cydia fagiglandana-also a new one for the garden. The pyralid maybe a dark form of P. roborella.

Cydia fagiglandana
