Micro Moths

We spotted these two little micro moths on our first outing to Chambers Farm Wood this year. Pyracausta ostrinalis (left) is just 18mm and pyracausta purpuralis (right) is 22mm. They were kind enough to pose on forget-me-nots, so you can get an idea of how tiny they are.micro-moths.jpg
