Description:

This individual shows a certain similarity to, but also some differences from a Jewel Beetle (Agrilus sp.) in a previous post of mine (6th July 2011). I should be grateful for an ID.

Moth?

Not possible to enlarge the picture by much, but I can't help thinking that this is a micro-moth of some type, possibly a Mompha species.

Moth?

Thank you. That possibility hadn’t occurred to me
