I found this micro moth, in a lane near Avebury, Wiltshire. Can anybody help with its identification. Thanks Peter.
Hello Peter, this looks to me like Anthophila fabriciana, which is somtimes called 'Nettle-tap' moth. They are often seen in flowers or hovering around nettles, which is the larval foodplant. They don't often hold still for photos so well done there
Good call SeaRayz.
There are a few more examples here, some very close to nomad's specimen
Thanks to SeaRayz and Mike for the quick ID for this tiny moth species. They are small but fascinating bugs.
