Cnephasia in early May = C. communana

I concur with Douglas that identifying Cnephasias from externals is very error prone. When even museum specimens have been dissected it has sometimes revealed that they were under the wrong name. However, I think any English Cnephasia found out-of-doors in early May is going to be C. communana ..... unless anyone knows otherwise!
