Grapholita? Grapholita?

Moved from Glyphipterigids.

Moved from Moths.

I can see the markings much better in this photo, and the closest visual match from P & O, plate 11.33
Glyphipterix montisella

Link to MPG image
MPG has pinned specimen image here. I think it may be a match...even has the long light creamy markings on the costal edge of forewing. And yes, would be very nice for you to have a living specimen image of a new species here on BG. :)

I'm Not Seeing It
I don't see the five (or six?) spots on the MPG specimen and the middle bars of my specimen are connected dorsally unlike MPG specimen but I don't know if any of that matters?

That Would Be Nice
to add a species to the Guide. I did a quick search for G. montisella but no help. Its often surprising to see which bugs from a particular trip will be the interesting ones. Thanks for your tenacious interest. Any help on the 116+ pages of BG "Moths" is always appreciated.

Well, it's nice to pretend I do something productive with my Summers off from work... and at some point about 2 years ago, I've actually scanned through ALL of those pages, starting at the oldest and working forward. Slacked off last summer though.

again, i used an image editor to brighten and improve contrast.
