1025 Tortricodes alternella, Hardcastle Craggs, Mar.15th 2014. One of three to MV light.
1026 Exapate congelatella resting on a dry-stone wall by Gallows Pole Plantation, Greetland. A daytime observation. I thought with the cool, wet weather it would hang around for photos but it was up and away from the off allowing just one record shot. Seems they do fly on calm afternoons.....
1036 Acleris forsskaleana. Of three larvae found in folded Field Maple leaves at Tag Loop on May 15th 2014 one was parasitised but the other two were reared through. Shown are the pupa(e) on May 29th, June 1st and the coloured up pupa on June 4th, the day before emergence.
1036 Acleris forsskaleana, June 7th 2014. The second moth reared from the pupae pictured above.
1038 Acleris laterana, Bankhouse wood, Aug.21st 2010.
1040 Acleris caledoniana, Norland Bilberry slopes, Aug.8th 09. Netted by day. This Bilberry loving species appeared to be the most common moth at this site in August of that year.
1041 Acleris sparsana, July 16th 2014. Reared from a larva found spun up on Sycamore in Bankhouse wood earlier in the spring.
1048 Garden Rose Tortrix, the garden, Oct.7th 2012. A field observation on Dogwood.
1055 Acleris hyemana, North Dean wood, Mar.25th 05. Captured by day. It's in good condition seeing as it emerged last autumn and has since hibernated. It may have originated from the small stands of Heather to be found within the woods although they do seem to wander a fair bit.
1062 Acleris emargana, Bankhouse wood, Aug.16th 2010. Netted at dusk.
1070 Olethreutes mygindiana feeding signs on Cowberry, Norland Bilberry slopes, Mar.28th 2010. Cowberry leaves spun together by these larvae are a common sight here.
1070 Olethreutes mygindiana, a 9mm larva exposed from between two spun Cowberry leaves, Norland Bilberry slopes, Mar.13th 2014.
1070 Olethreutes mygindiana, Mar.23rd 2010. One of several reared from larvae found spun up in Cowberry leaves from Norland Bilberry slopes. A rarely recorded moth despite being a very common species at this site, no doubt down to a distinct lack of recorders on the higher moors and heaths .
1076 Celypha lacunana, North Loop compound, June 14th 2014. A field observation.
1076 Celypha lacunana, North Dean wood, June 29th 06. A field observation. A very common polyphage, I think this one must have been here all night as it's covered in dew.
1082 Plum Tortrix May 22nd 2018. Reared from a larva spun up in Blackthorn leaves at Norland moor on May 10th the same year. The larva are a distinctive bright green with dark heads.

1087 Orthotaenia undulana, North Dean meadow, June 14th 06. A field observation.
1088 Agapeta hamana, the old sewage works at West Vale, June 30th 06. A field observation. I recorded a few individuals at this site during the summer. Probably extinct here now as yet another good site is cleared and levelled by developers!
1092 Apotomis turbidana Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve, June 16th 2018. Netted at dusk.
