    Danny, it's not really possible to identify it from the picture - a clearer closer image is needed. However, it is in the Tortricoid group. One of the most commonly seen is Celypha lacunana. Its markings resemble what I can make out on your picture, so it's the most probable.


    You also have a yellowish larva up for identification. It would help greatly if you say what plant a larva is found feeding on, and date when found.

    All I can say about the larva is that it is in the Geometer group, called Inch worms by the Americans as they move as if pacing out the distance.
