  1. So cool! We need just one more to have 10 in the family :) Posted 5 months ago
    1. Oh dear ... a challenge in disguise ;o) ... Will have a quick look what I may have, but not until later tonight ... Posted 5 months ago
      1. Fine, for just this one time a few hours delay is acceptable. Posted 5 months ago
        1. A bit of a bluff, but hey ...
          Nematopogon robertella ?? A bit of a bluff to meet Ferdy's challenge ... Image probably too bad for ID. I would think it to look more like Nematopogon pilella, but that one is very rare in NL. Obsidentify suggested N. robertella and that would fit the location (lots of Pine trees there). But with my luck it's probably just Adela reamurella ;o) Adelidae,Geotagged,Nematopogon,Nematopogon robertella,Netherlands,nl: Naaldboslangsprietmot
