A lot of these little moths have suddenly appeared, and they are dotted at intervals over the outside of the warehouse and the office block. These two next to each other caught my eye though; I thought it was one larger single moth at first! The little micromoth at the bottom is Agonopterix alstromeriana, from the Elachistidae family of micromoths, whose caterpillars are leaf miners on various grasses.
