Cypress Carpet

In the carousel. If anyone agrees perhaps they could add their agreement to try and remove it.

agreed!

Yes, I agree, and it's now showing as Cypress, so is no longer in the carousel above. See:

Guide to pine/spruce carpets

There's a useful guide to Pine/Grey Pine/Spruce carpet moths on the Hants Moths site:

Guide to pine/spruce carpets

Thanks Martin. There's another guide (link below) which shows the need to have several of the features present and not rely on just one. After reading this and then looking through the GPC's in the carousel I would question almost half of them. The presence (or absence) of the sub-terminal line is an important feature but seems to be largely ignored on here.
