    In the belief that we have someone who is able to identify some of the Coleophora moths (I see a number of phots from Sapcote), I would appreciate conformation, or otherwise, that this image is from that genus. I would also welcome any suggestions as to species based on my photo and probability factors.

    Many thanks.

    Your moth looks like Blastobasis lacticolella, not a Coleophora species. 

    Unfortunately when you do encounter Coleophora, they nearly all require identification by examination of the genitalia.
