Larval Life

A quick nose around in the garden this evening revealed a few larvae - like these:

Lacewing sp. - camouflaged in fragments of aphid skins etc

Early instar Yellow-tail

Early instar Vapourer

Blotch mine on silver birch - haven't worked it out yet

Some nice larvae there.

The miner on Birch looks like Ectoedemia occultella to me.

Many thanks Dave - I'll check that one out. Just had a quick look at your excellent blog; some great images you have there. I've added to my blog list to keep up with your postings.
