Another micro confirmed.

An update on a micro species seen at Staveley.

There were about ten of what appeared to be Syncopacma sp., half of which had a bowed crossline, the rest had a straight crossline.  I sent a specimen of each to Harry to determine, and I heard back today that the two (one straight and one bowed) were both males and the same species Syncopacma cinctella.   These appear to be only the 2nd VC64 record and 4th confirmed County record of this species.  Older records were probably of the recently split species S. larseniella which appears to be the more common and widespread species in the UK but only three old records in Yorkshire.
