Micro in Scotland last year

Unlikely to be a marbled orchard tortrix since that is pale at the back end whereas the moth I saw is dark . Think I'll go for 1260 Cydia s. as suggested by RogerR

Micro at Loch Sunart

C. Ulicetana seems the more likely species since it was found in gorse bushes at very end of May. Thanks for the probable ID, I notice it is not in Manley's book
