Wandering in Rewell

Small Purple and Gold, Pyrausta aurata, on Germander Speedwell
I have been continuing my search for new micromoths and other microfauna in one of my favourite places, Rewell Wood. Last Thursday I found Blue Shieldbug instars, Common Drill moth, Common Flowerbug, Garden Chafers, two Drinker moth larvae, a Jumping Spider, a Lacehopper, two Leafhoppers I need ids for, Noon Fly, a red & black ground beetle: Panagaeus bipustulatus, Rasberry Beetle, Triple-blotched Bell and Vetch Piercer micromoths, mating Bloody-nosed Beetles and mating flies. 
Identifying some of these creatures is a daunting task and although I spend a lot of time checking reference books and websites, some specimens remain unidentified, especially spiders and flies. I would appreciate your expertise if you can id some of these, or correct wrongly captioned photos. Thanks!
