The time of year is fine,

The time of year is fine, they're fly for most of the year. I would also be very surprised if they weren't common where you are. They're very common over most of Southern England. This is certainly E. postvittana.

NOTE: Patchy NBN distribution maps for micros are very common, lots of datasets don't reach them so they maps are often very incomplete.

Best wishes,

Douglas

thanks for info

Good to have sites like this where people communicate. Can't get this info from websites. Don't believe everything you read must be the motto.
