Moths and moth-like non-moths

A Powdered Quaker in the NOA trap this morning was a new moth for me, as was a Horse-chestnut Leaf Miner which I finally caught up with in Ringstead Downs. Several Feathered Brights were also on the wing there, as was a superb Green Longhorn.

Moth look-alikes included numerous as-yet-to-be-identified Whitefly in the Downs and a fabulous-looking Moth fly around the NOA pool.
