Spent a very pleasant morning in Dorset yesterday with James and Mark Parsons looking at micro larvae found on Dyer's Greenweed. This is in preparation for a quick search at Merryfield. we found the larvae of four different moths, all in spinnings in the terminal shoots. We have put tentative identifications to them but will breed them through to confirm. If anyone has already bred such material through and can confirm any of the species, I would be glad to hear from them.
probably Grapholita lathyrana
probably Mirificarma lentiginosella
probably Agonopterix atomella
probably a Cnephasia
