Orange ladybird Halyzia sedecimguttata

That orange ladybird is still knocking about in the conservatory at home, and I managed to get some better photos. This one is pretty cool, although I think the clear edges to the wing cases are a bit weird. You can see through it, man!

 

Below are some moths I tracked down around the outside of the warehouse at work as well.

 

The first one is a little yellowish tortix with brown markings, which rejoices in the name of Agapeta hamana. They live on thistles and are pretty common, according to those who declaim upon such things.

Here is another micromoth, whose marking look pretty random, and a small wave moth. Not totally sure, but I think it may be Elasticha subocellea, an insignificant little thing with no common English name.

 

I’m pretty sure the bottom one is the single dotted wave moth Idaea dimidiata.
