Foenella versus Jungiella

Thanks for the identification points above.

I put an Epiblema foenella picture up in February - photgraphed on 24 July 2010. If that identification is correct it looks more clean cut in the white area than the photo above and does not seem to have the grey line at the apex of the horseshoe shape.

Is there a lot of variation in these? For both types it is the first time I have identified them.

Re: Foenella versus Jungiella

Epiblema foenella is a variable species - the white mark can be very pronounced and in other instances it looks a bit more like a shape outlined in white but with an off-white area inside.
