A new micromoth

I caught this last night and it appears to be new for Islay (and the other islands) with very few Scottish records, though it is more frequent in England. It is called Egrestis pallidata and isn't common enough to have been given a vernacular name. It is quite large for a micromoth - about 13 mm long!
