    Will,

     

    1 is common marbled carpet Chloroclysta truncata

    http://ukmoths.org.uk/show.php?id=26

     

    2 is probably the same species!

    It is very variable.

    As the text in the web page above states, it is very similar to the dark marbled carpet, Chloroclysta citrata, and we'd have to look at the hind wings to tell them apart. Since we can't see the hind wings in your photo, we don't know which of the two it is for certain. But, september is a little late for dark marbled carpet. So I think it is probably common marbled carpet.

     

    Nice specimens and photos.

     

    Mike
