Looking back again

Looking back through many photos including the 'reject' file adds another moth species and also an intriguing leaf-mine.  While checking out photos from Pilmoor from a day visit on 3 June 2015, the adult moth was one I had completely overlooked before and was a distinctive species among a group of others.
