Coleophora follicularis

I wouldn't normally post a photo of a Coleophora, but this is one of the more handsome species. I found some larval cases on Hemp Agrimony at Slade Wood in May, and took a few home to try and rear through (we have some potted Hemp Agrimony in the garden, which made life a bit easier in terms of supplying fresh leaves). This adult emerged a few days ago.
