micro-moth

Looks like a micro-moth, but you probably knew that! What plant is it on?

Good question. I think it is

Good question. I think it is the young leaves of Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria). Also, a picture of the complete larva would have been useful.

stuck

Sorry, I'm still stuck. It doesn't look like a good match for any of the species that BRC list for Meadowsweet:

so could be one of the generalist species that feed on a wide range of plants.

spectrana

Clepsis spectrana certainly looks a good possibility, don't think we can be certain of it though.
