 Jeff,

Don't wish to doubt your i.d. skills, but phoenix does not fly until July-August: you have probably caught small phoenix. Also red carpet is not on the wing until mid-June and, unless you were trapping in moorland, you would not get them in the garden, for instance. For this species I would suggest flame carpet. I apologise if I am intruding with these observations.

Cheers,

Andy
