Had another trapping session at R&R Scholfield's garden in Colwyn Bay last night and added a few more to their garden list including one of those tiny micros that I can't yet put a name too. It's a slate grey colour with antennae resting forward and the nearest I can get is the dark form of ypsolopha vittella - but there are only 4 other North Wales records! It is the same colour as coleophora albitarsell and coleophora seratella/spinella but these have white legs/antennae whereas they are all dark on this moth. Sadly not great pics because of its size but any help much appreciated.
