Cossidae to Zygaenidae
For species seen in 2020 that had less than or equal to 100 records, full details are included; for more common species, the earliest, latest and highest count by vice-county are shown. The narrative for each species is taken from the main Hantsmoths website, and it is possible that some information on abundance and occurrence can get out of date, as it is impossible to keep up with all changes; however it should give a good introduction to each species.
The tables in each species account summarise the previous status, and that for the current year.
For the maps, all records prior to 2020 are shown by a blue dot (the larger the dot, the more recent), with the current year's records shown in red. As previous records are superimposed on any report for 2020, new sites have greater emphasis (i.e. will show as 'more red').
In the species accounts, an asterisk next to a location indicates a new 10km square record; earliest ever dates are highlighted in orange, and latest ever in red. Initials in the species accounts refer to the recorders listed here.
Please get in touch if you identify any omissions or errors, in particular if you have records that have yet to be submitted. Details of how to submit records can be found here.

Tortricidae

Chlidanotinae

49.001 1013 Olindia schumacherana (Fabricius, 1787) - Local
Local in woodland, marshes, river-banks and other damp areas throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire and Wight an uncommon and elusive species, which favours areas such as Harewood Forest, Botley Wood and Pamber Forest, but which is apparently absent from much of the New Forest. Wingspan 11-16 mm. The dark fuscous-brown coloration of the fore- and hindwings and the contrasting white antemedian fascia of the forewing are characteristic of this species [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Lesser Celandine, Alternate-leaved Golden-saxifrage, Dog's Mercury and similar, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.004 1010 Red-barred Tortrix Ditula angustiorana (Haworth, 1811) - Common
Common in woodland, parks and gardens throughout much of the British Isles, less numerous in the north. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight common to very common. Wingspan 13-18 mm. The dark coloration of the fore- and hindwings, and the strongly pectinate antennae, are characteristic of the male; in the female the forewing is attenuated and the markings contrast with the greyish white ground colour [Bradley]. The larva is polyphagous on many plants, including yew and rhododendron - species that otherwise have few predators. It sometimes does superficial damage to ripening fruits in orchards.

49.009 1007 Capua vulgana (Frölich, 1828) - Common
Common in woodland, downland and acid grassland throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widely distributed but not particularly common. Wingspan 13-19 mm. The male may be distinguished by the paler basal area of the forewing and the pale buff head and labial palpi, the female somewhat resembles an obscurely marked Cnephasia but differs in having the forewing distinctly buff-coloured [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Hornbeam, Alder, Rowan, Raspberry and Bilberry, living within a spun or rolled leaf, and over-wintering as a pupa.

49.023 0971 Pandemis cinnamomeana (Treitschke, 1830) - Common
Common in woodland throughout much of England and Wales. In Hampshire widespread but rarely common, although frequent in Botley Wood. Probably under-recorded elsewhere, none more so than on the Isle of Wight, where it was not recorded until 2013. Wingspan 18-24 mm. Weakly marked specimens, especially those with drab coloration, may be confused with forms of Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix P. heparana, from which the male may be distinguished by the white head and the female by the presence of reddish ochreous suffusion in the apical area of the hindwing [Bradley]. Larva feeds on various deciduous trees and shrubs, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.026 0972 Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix Pandemis heparana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) - Common
Common in oak woodland, orchards and gardens throughout the British Isles. Widespread and common in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 16-24 mm. Similar in general coloration to P. cinnamomeana but lacking the white scaling on the frons in the male and the reddish suffusion in the apical area of the hindwing in the female. The angular projection of the median fascia distinguishes P. heparana from P. cinnamomeana and from brownish forms of P. cerasana [Bradley]. Larva polyphagous on various trees and shrubs, including several species of fruit tree, on which it occasionally causes much damage, attacking flowers of crops such as apple, pear, plum and currant, otherwise often living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.031 0989 Timothy Tortrix Zelotherses paleana (Hübner, 1793) - Common
Common on rough grassland and coastal sandhills throughout the British Isles, scarcer in the north. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight a local and uncommon species, but widely distributed, with no apparent population centre. Wingspan 17-24 mm. Whitish or greyish ochreous forms of this species can be confused with A. unitana, but may usually be distinguished by the darker cilia of the forewing in both sexes, and by the orange-yellow suffusion on the head and thoracic region and on the basal area of the forewing, especially in the male [Bradley]; see also Bilberry Tortrix A. viburnana. Larva feeds on various grasses and herbaceous plants, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.039 0998 Light Brown Apple Moth Epiphyas postvittana (Walker, 1863) - Common
Common in gardens throughout much of the country. Thoroughly naturalised, through accidental introduction in garden plants, this native of Australia was first reported in Britain from Cornwall in 1936, it has since expanded its range across most of the country, and can be abundant where it occurs. Shows a marked preference for urban gardens, remaining relatively rare away from towns, and despite its common name, is neither light brown, nor particularly fond of apple! Widespread and common in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan male 16-21 mm, female 17-25 mm. The male is usually distinguished by the abrupt division of the forewing medially into a pale basal area and darker apical area, and the female by its large size and relatively elongate forewing, often with greatly reduced markings [Bradley]. Larva polyphagous on a wide range of plants, including Evergreen Spindle, causing sufficient damage to fruit trees to be a serious pest in some areas.

49.044 1025 Tortricodes alternella ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) - Common
Common, in deciduous woodland, especially of oak, throughout Britain. In Hampshire, widely distributed and relatively common in oak woodland, appearing in 2009 in considerable numbers, including in many gardens well away from oak woodland. Likely to be under-recorded on the Isle of Wight with few recent records. Wingspan 19-23mm. One of the earliest Tortricids to emerge in Spring and unlikely to be confused with hibernating Tortricids which may be on the wing in early spring [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Oak, Hornbeam, Hazel, Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Lime and Birch, living between leaves spun together with silk, and over-wintering as a pupa.

49.049 1024 Light Grey Tortrix Cnephasia incertana (Treitschke, 1835) - Common
Common in woodland edges and hedgerows throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and common. Wingspan 14-18 mm. Another small Cnephasia about the size of C. asseclana, from which distinguished by the weaker irroration in the forewing (not as pale as C. genitalana).

49.050 1020 Grey Tortrix Cnephasia stephensiana (Doubleday, [1849]) - Common
Common in a wide range of habitats throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and generally the commonest of the Cnephasia which occur in the county. Wingspan 18-22 mm. The largest of the British Cnephasia with relatively broad forewings having a dark ground colour and dark grey fascia; small specimens may be confused with C. asseclana but in that species the costal spot of the forewing is stronger and usually extends to the termen. Often readily identified on size alone, but can be determined with certainty only by dissection of the genitalia. Larva polyphagous on various herbaceous plants, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.051 1021 Flax Tortrix Cnephasia asseclana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) - Common
Common in gardens, farmland and other open areas throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and common. Wingspan 15-18 mm. Distinguished from C. pasiuana by the usually stronger and more variegated forewing pattern with a relatively narrow median fascia. Smaller than C. stephensiana but with similar dark markings so could quite easily be confused with small specimens of that species. Can be determined with certainty only by dissection of the genitalia. Larva polyphagous on various herbaceous plants, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.053 1022a Cereal Tortrix Cnephasia pumicana (Zeller, 1847) - Local
Local in gardens and other open areas in south-east England. C. pumicana was synonymised under C. pasiuana by Razowski (1989). Work recently published in Langmaid and Agassiz, 2010 indicates that consistent differences in genitalia exist between the two taxa, especially in the male, and that therefore there is no reason to not treat pumicana as a valid taxon. On external morphology, the adult's indistinct and often pale patterning (dark specimens do occur) makes identification on wing features alone impossible, as it is indistinguishable from pasiuana and, for pale specimens, from genitalana. The earliest confirmed record that has so far been identified from re-examining genitalia preparations previously attributed to pasiuana dates from 1986, and all have occurred in south-east England, indicating that this is most likely a recent arrival to the country; confirmed English specimens have been taken from 24 June to 8 August, with the majority in mid-late July. On the continent it is stated as being polyphagous on cereals, grasses, legumes and flax (Chambon & Genestier, 1980). Records in Hampshire date from 2004 onwards, but so far yet to be recorded on the Isle of Wight. The wingspan is similar to pasiuana, at 15-20 mm.

49.055 1018 Cnephasia communana (Herrich-Schäffer, 1851) - Local
Local with a preference for dry pastures, downland and fens throughout England and Wales. The distribution in Hampshire mirrors those areas in which trapping effort is concentrated, and the moth is probably more widely distributed than the records suggest; not yet recorded on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 18-22 mm. The earliest Cnephasia to emerge and the only one on the wing during most of May, about the size of Grey Tortrix C. stephensiana and usually with a paler ground colour and paler brownish fascia, but like all Cnephasia, identification can only be confirmed by dissection of genitalia. Larva feeds on various herbaceous plants, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.058 1034 Spatalistis bifasciana (Hübner, [1787]) - Local
Local in woodland edges in parts of southern England and southern Wales. In Hampshire a rare or, more probably, overlooked species, with notable populations in Pamber Forest and Botley Wood. On the Isle of Wight, first recorded in 1972 in Parkhurst Forest, with no other records received until 2009, when one was at Freshwater. Wingspan 12-14 mm. The small size of this species and the dark coloration and ochreous-yellow apical area of the forewing are characteristic [Bradley], although it does bear a superficial resemblance to the far more common Pseudargyrotoza conwagana. Larva feeds within berries of Buckthorn, Alder Buckthorn and Dogwood.

49.059 1033 Green Oak Tortrix Tortrix viridana Linnaeus, 1758 - Common
Common in oak woodland, woodland, parks, gardens and areas with scattered trees throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight formerly abundant in oak woods, though prone to annual fluctuations. At times, larvae would reach pest proportions and form the staple diet for insectivorous birds and their young, but this phenomenon is rarely noted nowadays. Wingspan 17-24 mm. This species is unique amongst the British Tortricids in having a light green, almost unicolorous forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Oak and deciduous trees, living within a spun or rolled leaf, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas, over-wintering as an egg.

Local in gardens and woodland throughout much of England and Wales, rare in Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight local on the chalk, where the the larva is found mainly on Wayfaring-tree, and in the New Forest and elsewhere, where it occurs on Guelder-rose; also occurs in gardens where either (or both) species is planted. Wingspan 15-20 mm. The moderately rough-scaled anterior margin of the forewing and the enlarged costal blotch, which extends to near the apex, distinguish this species from A. laterana and A. comariana [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Guelder-rose and Wayfaring-tree, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.075 1052 Acleris umbrana (Hübner, [1799]) - Nationally Scarce A
Nationally scarce (Na) in woodland, fens and marshes in parts of England and Wales. In Hampshire this scarce and elusive species has been knocked out of old hawthorns in the New Forest in the past, but nothing has been heard of it since the 1930s, until there was an aberrant migration event in early January 2013, when a number were trapped across southern England, during which an individual turned up in Pennington. In subsequent years the species has become increasingly frequent and appearances in the county are now expected annually. Wingspan 18-23 mm. This species is similar to certain forms of A. hastiana; it may be distinguished by differences in the shape of the costa of the forewing, which in both sexes of A. hastiana appears shallowly concave beyond the middle; also, the two small but well-developed scale-tufts present in the tornal area of the forewing in A. umbrana, are not found in A. hastiana [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Blackthorn, Hawthorn, Bird Cherry and Rowan, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.076 1054 Acleris cristana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) - Common
Common in woodland throughout much of southern England. Reasonably well distributed across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 18-22 mm. The very large coarse-scaled tuft situated towards the end of the discal cell on the forewing is peculiar to A. cristana, and is present in most forms, readily distinguishing this species from others in the genus Acleris [Bradley]. Larva feeds on various herbaceous trees and shrubs, including Blackthorn, Hawthorn, Beech, Oak, Birch, Hazel, Lime and Elm, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.078 1043 Acleris aspersana (Hübner, [1817]) - Common
Common on grassland, downland, heaths and other open areas throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight mainly associated with chalk downland, but also found in other habitats such as marshes. Wingspan male 11-17 mm, female 11-14 mm. The small size of this species and the bright orange-yellow general coloration of the forewing are distinguishing features [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Wild Strawberry, Marsh Cinquefoil, Meadowsweet and other Rosaceae, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

Common in woodland, hedgerows, fens and freshwater margins throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and common. Wingspan 17-24 mm. A number of forms of this highly polymorphic species resemble certain forms of A. cristana, but A. hastiana can usually be distinguished by the relatively straight costa of the forewing and the presence of numerous small scale-tufts; other forms resemble A. umbrana and A. abietana, which see. Larva feeds on various species of Salix, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.082 1055 Acleris hyemana (Haworth, 1811) - Local
Local on heathland and moorland throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire most frequent in the New Forest; there is one record from the Isle of Wight and a few from outside the New Forest, which suggest the species may, on occasion, adapt to cultivated heathers. Wingspan 14-20 mm. The narrow forewings with prominent apex, especially in the female, and the purplish brown and silver-white coloration are characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Heather and Bilberry, living between shoots spun together with silk.

49.086 1051 Acleris logiana (Clerck, 1759) - Local
Local in birch woodland in parts of the Scottish Highlands, appearing in recent years as a migrant in southern England, where temporarily established. In Hampshire this species was first recorded in the county from larvae collected in Botley Wood in vice-county 11 by John Langmaid in 1991; a remarkable discovery, given that previously it was known only from the Highlands of Scotland. Subsequent discoveries elsewhere in birch woodland in vice-county 11 indicate that it is most likely a new arrival which is spreading; the individual shown here was the first for the north of the county, and was followed closely by another found on a tree trunk during a trapping session on Hook Common in 2003. On the Isle of Wight recorded for the first time in 1997, with another in 2012 at Cranmore. Wingspan 18-22 mm. The nominate form and f. tripunctana of this species resemble specimens of the autumn generation of A. kochiella. Larva feeds on Silver Birch and Downy Birch, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.087 1061 Acleris literana (Linnaeus, 1758) - Local
Local in oak woodland throughout much of Britain, rare in Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight reasonably well distributed in suitable habitat throughout; perhaps benefitting from a reduction in the amount of collecting of this highly variable and attractive species. Wingspan 18-22 mm. Although an extremely variable species, readily distinguished by the light green or olive-green ground colour and black markings of the forewing, and the presence of characteristic fulvous or ferruginous markings in some of the forms [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Oak, living between leaves spun together with silk.

Formerly very local in parts of southern England, but presumed extinct until 2010 when one was trapped in Buckinghamshire; subequently, 2017 saw three records, with more to follow across several southern counties in 2018. This reappearance may be due to introductions with planted tree saplings. First recorded in Hampshire in 2020. Wingspan 11-15 mm. Readily distinguished by the bright ochreous basal area and contrasting dark coloration of the distal half of the forewing with the distinctive metallic spots, and the area of yellowish coloration forming a conspicuous quadrate spot on the costa [Bradley]. Larva feeds within stems of Elm, Black Poplar and Bird Cherry, forming galls.

49.094 0923 Phtheochroa sodaliana (Haworth, 1811) - Nationally Scarce B
Nationally scarce (Nb) in dry pastures, heathland and fens in parts of England and south-western Ireland. In Hampshire very local on the chalk around Winchester between the Itchen and Test valleys, also recorded historically from Oxenbourne Down, with wanderers elsewhere. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 13-17 mm. In some respects reminiscent of a small P. rugosana but at once distinguished by the conspicuous ferruginous-red apical spot and the generally white basal area of the forewing; the dappled hindwing distinguishes this species from Hysterophora maculosana [Bradley].

Local in woodland throughout much of the British Isles, south of Inverness-shire. In Hampshire recorded less than annually from scattered localities across the south of the county, and still rare on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 10-14 mm. Distinguished from Phtheochroa sodaliana by its smaller size, the generally darker coloration of the forewing, and the relatively whiter hindwing of the male and dark greyish fuscous hindwing of the female [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seedheads of Bluebell.

Common in a wide range of habitats throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and rather common in localities where the foodplant occurs, mainly on the chalk and along the coast. Wingspan 13-21 mm. Large specimens with the markings well developed may resemble small C. alternana but may be recognised by the comparatively unmarked basal and terminal areas of the forewing and the absence of scale-tufts in the median fascia [Bradley]. Larva feeds within stems of Common Knapweed, living within the developing seeds.

49.112 0955 Vine Moth Eupoecilia ambiguella (Hübner, 1796) - Nationally Scarce B
Nationally scarce (Nb) on heathland and woodland in parts of southern England. In Hampshire very local in the New Forest and Emer Bog in the south, and discovered in 1987 on Newtown Common in the north. On the Isle of Wight, recorded from a few sites in the far west. A distinctive species, readily recognised by the pale ochreous general coloration of the forewing and the contrasting heavy median fascia [Bradley]. Larva feeds within flowers of Alder Buckthorn, Honeysuckle and Grape-vine, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in vineyards in some areas, over-wintering in a case made from leaf fragments.

49.120 0947 Aethes smeathmanniana (Fabricius, 1781) - Common
Common in waste ground, shingle beaches and chalk downland throughout much of Britain. In Hampshire widespread and common but probably under-recorded, the extent of known records correlating with those areas in which the recording effort is concentrated. On the Isle of Wight, seemingly rather uncommon. Wingspan 12-17 mm. Readily distinguished from A. cnicana and A. rubigana by the narrower and more elongate forewing and the narrower median fascia which is more outward-oblique from the dorsum; in general appearance it somewhat resembles Cochylimorpha straminea but is distinguished by the presence of the well-developed fasciate pre-tornal marking [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seedheads of Yarrow and Common Knapweed.

Local in a wide range of habitats throughout much of southern England, with records north to Yorkshire. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight it seems to prefer xerothermic conditions such as dry, close-cropped chalk downland and coastal shingle, and largely absent from the New Forest and northern half of the county. Wingspan 12-17 mm. The bold chequered pattern formed by the markings and contrasting ground colour of the forewing are characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Ploughman's-spikenard, Bristly Oxtongue and Hawkweed Oxtongue.

49.124 0950 Aethes francillana (Fabricius, 1794) - Local
Local in dry pastures, downland and waste ground throughout much of the British Isles, predominantly coastal in the north of its range. In Hampshire largely absent from the New Forest and uncommon in the north, but fairly widely distributed in the south-east and along the chalk. On the Isle of Wight, there are no recent records, but it has occurred in the past. Wingspan 13-18 mm. Differs from A. dilucidana in having the median fascia of the forewing complete; compared with A. beatricella the median and postmedian fasciae are narrower and more oblique, the costal end of the median fascia extending beyond the dorsal end of the postmedian [Bradley]. Larva feeds on seeds of Wild Carrot, living between flower heads spun together with silk.

49.132 0956 Cochylidia implicitana (Wocke, 1856) - Local
Local on waste ground throughout much of southern England, north to Lancashire. In Hampshire an elusive, uncommon species, with scattered records mainly concentrated in North Hampshire and the south-east. Rarely encountered elsewhere, including the New Forest and the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 10-14 mm. Slightly larger than C. heydeniana, and usually readily distinguished by the presence of a weak pinkish flush to the forewing and the relatively slender median fascia; similar to forms of Falseuncaria degreyana, which lack the pink flush to the forewing, but which are readily recognised by the conspicuous line in the cilia [Bradley]. Larva feeds on flowers of Scented Mayweed, Sea Mayweed, Stinking Chamomile and Goldenrod, over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.134 0962 Cochylis roseana (Haworth, 1811) - Local
Local in rough ground throughout much of southern England, with records north to Cheshire. Under-recorded in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight, where the extent of known records correlate with those areas in which the recording effort is concentrated, and probably present wherever the foodplants occurs regularly. Wingspan 10-17 mm. Distinguished from C. flaviciliana by the darker median fascia of the forewing and the presence of a subapical line in the cilia; the presence of the subapical line also separates this species from Falseuncaria degreyana [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seedheads of Wild Teasel.

49.135 0963 Cochylis flaviciliana (Westwood, 1854) - Nationally Scarce B
Nationally scarce (Nb) in dry, calcareous grassland in parts of southern England, southern Wales and on the Burren in Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight individuals occasionally turn up, mainly on calcareous soils. Wingspan 11-16 mm. The contrasting bright rose-pink and cream-white forewing coloration is characteristic; differs from C. roseana by the lighter median fascia of the forewing and the absence of a subapical line in the cilia [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seedheads of Field Scabious, over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.139 0966 Cochylichroa atricapitana (Stephens, 1852) - Common
Common on chalk downland and rough ground throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and fairly common on chalk downland and along the coast, and increasingly common wherever the larval foodplant is allowed to prosper. Wingspan 12-16 mm. The dark coloration of the head and thorax distinguish this species from C. dubitana and C. hybridella [Bradley]. Larva feeds on the flowers, stems and roots of Common Ragwort, over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.142 0960 Falseuncaria ruficiliana (Haworth, 1811) - Local
Local on downland, heathland and mosses throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire mainly restricted to downland sites such as Martin Down and Portsdown in the south, and Noar Hill in the north. On the Isle of Wight, has been recorded in the past, but there has been no recent records. Wingspan 12-15 mm. The lack of rose coloration in the forewing and the comparatively broad whitish-edged median fascia distinguish this species from F. degreyana [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seedheads of Cowslip and Lousewort, over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.144 1113 Eudemis profundana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) - Common
Common in oak woodland, in England, Wales and southern Ireland. Widespread and fairly common to common in oak woodland in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 14-20 mm. The rather broad, rounded forewing and general marbled appearance are characteristic of the two Eudemis species on the British list: E. profundana is separated from E. porphyrana by having the upper edge of the dorsal blotch not deeply indented and the basal fasciae usually well developed dorsally [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Oak, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.145 1088 Pseudosciaphila branderiana (Linnaeus, 1758) - Nationally Scarce B
Nationally scarce (Nb) wherever there are stands of aspen, in woodland, gardens and parkland across much of southern England, occasionally north to Yorkshire. In Hampshire very local on a few sites, particularly Botley Wood and Pamber Forest, and seldom straying far. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1900. Wingspan 21-27 mm. One of the largest of the British Olethreutines, this species is further characterised by the general forewing coloration and the obsolete or obsolescent markings; the typical almost unicolorous form and the fasciate f. wahlbomiana appear to be equally frequent in occurrence [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Aspen, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.146 1089 Apotomis semifasciana (Haworth, 1811) - Nationally Scarce B
Nationally scarce (Nb) in woodland and along freshwater margins throughout the British Isles, except in northern Scotland. In Hampshire virtually unknown away from Botley Wood, with just a handful of records elsewhere in the county and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 17-21 mm. Black and white forms may be confused with A. lineana, but A. semifasciana has broader forewing and lacks the greyish suffusion along the dorsum; another possible confusion species is A. infida but generally darker, with a less outwardly oblique inner edge of the median fascia, and more weakly angulate outer edge of the subbasal fascia [Bradley]. Larva feeds on catkins of Sallow, subsequently living within a leaf-fold.

49.151 1094 Apotomis capreana (Hübner, [1817]) - Local
Local in woodland, marshes, river-banks and by ditches in the southern half of England and Wales. Fairly widely distributed in Hampshire, but recorded only once on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 18-22 mm. Differs from A. betuletana by its somewhat broader forewing, the costa being more strongly arched; further distinguished by the slightly concave outer edge of the median fascia and its hook-like indentation at the middle and the generally more strongly dilated and black-dotted subterminal fascia [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Goat Willow, living between leaves spun together with silk.

In Hampshire there have been very few records of this species, reported from Romsey, Roydon Woods, Pennington and Merritown Heath in the current decade. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 14-20 mm. Similar to A. turbidana but slightly smaller and with a narrower forewing; it differs further by the straighter and less strongly indented outer edge of the median fascia, the darker apex and cilia and by the lighter hindwing [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Birch, living between leaves spun together with silk, over-wintering as a pupa.

Local in woodland and on moorland throughout much of England and Wales, and on moorland between 650 m and 950 m in northern Scotland. In Hampshire it is recorded occasionally in the New Forest and from one or two places in north Hampshire. On the Isle of Wight, there is one record at Newtown in 1975. Wingspan 15-18 mm. In size and general appearance this species is reminiscent of Endothenia gentianaeana, but differs in the generally darker blue-black coloration of the forewing and the smaller and comparatively inconspicuous marking on the submedian fold [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Bilberry, living between shoots spun together with silk.

49.157 1082 Plum Tortrix Hedya pruniana (Hübner, [1799]) - Common
Common in woodland, hedgerows and gardens throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and common throughout. Wingspan 15-18 mm. Similar to H. nubiferana but generally smaller, H. pruniana may be distinguished by the two blackish postmedian dots being situated distad of the medial angulation of the median fascia; in H. nubiferana these are situated costad of the projection [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Blackthorn, Plum and Wild Cherry.

Common in gardens, orchards and hedgerows throughout much of England and Wales, more numerous in the south. In Hampshire widespread and common throughout, but there have been no recent records from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 16-21 mm. The comparatively lightly marked, ochreous-cream coloration in the distal part of the forewing is characteristic of this species [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Dog-rose, living between shoots spun together with silk.

Local in rough pastures and grassland in parts of southern England, southern Wales and southern Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight records are widely, but very sparsely, distributed throughout. Wingspan 15-19 mm. The overall pink or pinkish buff general coloration of the forewing distinguishes this species from C. striana and C. rufana; furthermore, in C. striana the median fascia is strongly developed while in C. rufana the forewing is comparatively broad and the general coloration is darker, varying from dull olive-brown to ferruginous-brown [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Sow-thistle and Dandelion.

49.164 1067 Celypha cespitana (Hübner, [1817]) - Local
Local on chalk downland, dry pastures, sand-hills and sea-cliffs throughout the British Isles, predominantly coastal in the north of its range. Widespread but distinctly uncommon in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 12-16 mm. Similar in forewing markings and coloration to the rare and local C. doubledayana, but usually larger and differs in the shape of the forewing, the costa being more gently arched and the apex more angular and prominent [Bradley]. Day-flying, occasionally comes to light. Larva feeds on Wild Thyme, Common Sea-lavender and Thrift.

Common on woodland edges and roadside verges and in rough grassland, hedgerows and gardens throughout the British Isles. Widespread and common in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 14-18 mm. Although extremely variable, this species can usually be distinguished from its near relatives by the strong indentation or lacuna in the median fascia above the middle, and in dark forms this indentation tends to become obscure but is seldom totally obliterated [Bradley]. Larva polyphagous on numerous herbaceous, and some woody, plants, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.169 1069 Celypha aurofasciana (Haworth, 1811) - Nationally Scarce A
Nationally scarce (Na) in woodland in parts of southern England and western Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight there are three old records, at Bembridge in 1875, Emery Down in 1900 and Baddesley Great Covert in 1929, but nothing was heard of it since until 2012, when it was found to be common in a Ventnor, Isle of Wight garden. Subsequently scattered reports have come in from a number of localities in mainland Hampshire, so it would appear to be increasing in range. Wingspan 12-14 mm. The narrow and apically rather rounded forewing and the typically conspicuous, broad, yellow fasciate area between the basal patch and median fascia distinguish this species; the specialised lobe at the base of the hindwing of the male is also characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds on various mosses and various liverworts, often on tree trunks, living within a silken tube or tent.

Local, in pine woodland, throughout much of Britain and southern Ireland. In Hampshire, locally common in pinewoods, especially on Scots Pine in the south of the county; also on Maritime Pine, a species that is locally common along the coast. Very few records from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 12-16mm. The comparatively rounded forewing, relatively straight-edged basal patch and well-defined, broad, almost parallel-sided median fascia, together with the pale ochreous general coloration, often tinged with pinkish, are characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Scots Pine and Maritime Pine, living within a silken gallery amongst the young shoots and male plants.

49.185 1109 Lobesia littoralis (Westwood & Humphreys, 1845) - Local
Local on sea cliffs, saltmarshes, shingle beaches and gardens throughout much of the British Isles, predominantly coastal. In Hampshire common on the coast amongst sea-thrift, but has also become well-established in gardens where this plant is grown. On the Isle of Wight, largely restricted to the extreme south-western corner of the Island. Wingspan 12-15 mm. The largest of the British Lobesia species, it is distinguished by its comparatively narrow forewing with a normally well-defined median fascia and with the subbasal fascia forming a strong subquadrate blotch on the dorsum [Bradley]. Larva feeds on flowers and seedheads of Thrift.

49.186 1097 Endothenia gentianaeana (Hübner, [1799]) - Common
Common on rough ground and dry pastures throughout much of England and Wales, less numerous in the north. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight this species probably occurs wherever Teasel is established - even a few plants seems to suffice. Wingspan 15-19 mm. Generally larger than other species of Endothenia, it has the forewing ground colour more extensively tinged with ochreous distally and a usually distinct pale grey or pale violaceous grey patch from the tornus reaching half way across the wing to near the middle [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seedheads of Wild Teasel: opening old heads in winter seldom fails to produce evidence of the larva in the central pith; the larva itself may either be found in the head or inside the stalk.

49.187 1098 Endothenia oblongana (Haworth, 1811) - Local
Local on field edges, chalk downland and flower meadows throughout much of England and Wales. In Hampshire recorded increasingly, mainly in the south-east of the county, and remaining rare away from the chalk; first reported from Wight in 2015. Wingspan 13-15 mm. Resembles a medium-sized E. gentianaeana but distinguished by the more broadly suffused apical area, which reduces or narrows the band of whitish ground colour beyond the median fascia, the more strongly dilated subterminal fascia, the pale patch from the tornus lacking a violaceous tinge, and by the paler hindwing [Bradley]. Despite what some publications say, the larva does not feed on Common Knapweed, but in the rootstock of Plantago lanceolata (Entomologists Gazette (2010) Vol. 61).

Common in rough ground, damp meadows, heathland and fens throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire only regular in the south-east; extremely scarce on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 11-16 mm. The male of E. marginana can be distinguished from both sexes of E. gentianaeana and E. oblongana by its conspicuously white hindwings; the female is not so readily distinguished, having only the basal area of the hindwing paler. Both sexes can be usually separated from small specimens of E. gentianaeana by the narrow band of whitish ground colour beyond the median fascia of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seedheads of Betony, Common Hemp-nettle, Lousewort and Yellow-rattle.

Nationally scarce (Nb) in woodland and waste ground in parts of England and Wales, mainly in the south and south-east. In Hampshire recorded very rarely away from Botley Wood, and there have been no recent records from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 9-13 mm. The general coloration of the forewing is darker than in E. pullana, with which it has been thoroughly confused in the past; further distinguished by the darker hindwing and cilia [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Bugle.

Local in woodland and dry pastures throughout much of England and Wales. In Hampshire mainly restricted to the south-east and M3 corridor, but perhaps under-recorded; there are no recent records from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 11-15 mm. The obscure fasciate markings of the forewing and the large, diffuse, yellow-ochreous dorsal blotch obliterating the median fascia except for a narrow bar at the costa are characteristic, but an inconspicuous and sluggish species, whose presence is sometimes only revealed by collecting dry old stems of hedge woundwort during the winter [Bradley]. Larva feeds within stems and roots of Hedge Woundwort.

Common in damp heathland, mosses, marshes, river-banks and moorland throughout the British Isles. Widespread and common in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 10-17 mm. Distinguished from B. furfurana by the crescent-shaped discocellular mark and the absence of a basal patch on the forewing; unicolorous specimens can only be separated by examination of the genitalia. Small specimens of B. robustana often resemble B. lancealana superficially and dissection of the genitalia may be necessary [Bradley]. Larva feeds within stems of Compact Rush, Common Club-rush and Deergrass.

49.195 1110 Bactra furfurana (Haworth, 1811) - Local
Local in marshes, river-banks and ditches throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire the majority of records are from the south-east corner of the county and from Christchurch, and although there are only a few inland records, it has been recorded in the northern half of the county on a number of occasions. Recorded on the Isle of Wight for the first time since 1900 at Cranmore in 2011. Wingspan 11-18 mm. The weakly reticulate ground colour, the presence of a dark basal patch and a comparatively well-developed median fascia distinguish this species from B. lancealana and small examples of B. robustana; weakly marked and unicolorous specimens can only be separated by examination of the genitalia [Bradley]. Larva feeds within stems of Common Club-rush and Compact Rush.

Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 12-16 mm. Formerly regarded as a dark form of Bud Moth S. ocellana, from which distinguished by the comparatively narrow forewings and the nearly pure white ground colour coarsely strigulate with blackish grey [Bradley]. Larva feeds within bark of European Larch, living between needles spun together with silk, and over-wintering in a silken chamber.

49.231 1155 Epinotia brunnichana (Linnaeus, 1767) - Common
Common in birch woodland and on heathland throughout much of Britain, more frequently in the north. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and common. Wingspan 18-23 mm. The nominate and other fasciate forms of E. brunnichana may be confused with some forms of E. solandriana but can be distinguished by the shape of the dorsal blotch of ground colour which is subquadrate in E. brunnichana and not triangular as in E. solandriana; in E. brunnichana the outer edge of the subbasal fascia is less oblique dorsally [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Birch, Hazel and Sallow, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.233 1156 Epinotia solandriana (Linnaeus, 1758) - Common
Common in woodland and scrubland throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire widespread and common, but with only scattered records from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 15-21 mm. The nominate form of E. solandriana with the elongate-semiovate dorsal blotch on the forewing is distinctive, but forms with fasciate markings or with a white triangular blotch of ground colour dorsally can be confused with similar forms of E. brunnichana; in E. solandriana the dorsal blotch is triangular instead of subquadrate [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Birch, Hazel and Goat Willow, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.234 1150 Epinotia abbreviana (Fabricius, 1794) - Common
Common in hedgerows and woodland throughout much of the British Isles, favouring low-lying areas. In Hampshire still fairly common, especially in the south-east, with scattered records in the north, but largely absent from the New Forest and on the Isle of Wight, where there are only two recent records. Wingspan 12-16 mm. Well-marked specimens are characterised by the well-defined basal patch, which is angular medially and broadly edged throughout with the light ground colour, and the median fascia being more or less edged throughout distally with plumbeous strigulation; in dark or almost unicolorous specimens this plumbeous strigulation is still evident [Bradley]. Larva feeds on buds of Elm, revealing a highly distinctive arc of holes, subsequently living within a spun leaf.

49.237 1144 Epinotia signatana (Douglas, 1845) - Local
Local in woodland, hedgerows and scrub in England and Wales, mostly in the south and east. In Hampshire local and uncommon, largely restricted to the south-east, where there is a notable population in Botley Wood; very rare in the New Forest and north of the county, and not recorded from the Isle of Wight until 2014. Wingspan 14-16 mm. Characterised by its rather nondescript general appearance and the comparatively prominent black discal streak [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Blackthorn, Wild Cherry and Bird Cherry, living between leaves and shoots spun together with silk.

49.238 1147 Willow Tortrix Epinotia cruciana (Linnaeus, 1761) - Local
Local in a wide range of habitats throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire almost exclusively confined to the south-east corner, especially Botley Wood, but also Havant Thicket, Swanwick, Titchfield Haven, Wickham Common and a few other sites. Elsewhere, there are a few records from the north-east of the county, and on the Isle of Wight the species was last recorded at Priory Bay in 1979. Wingspan 12-15 mm. The very oblique median fascia and the subterminal fascia, with which it is confluent, enclose a triangular patch of ground colour on the costa, forming a distinctive forewing pattern characteristic of this species [Bradley]. Larva feeds on terminal shoots of Creeping Willow, Eared Willow and Sallow, living between leaves spun together with silk.

Common in birch woodland throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire widespread and common throughout. On the Isle of Wight, the only recent record is of one in Combley Great Wood in October 2005. Wingspan 13-16 mm. Distinguished from E. bilunana by the grey general appearance of the forewing and particularly the comparatively solid and sharply defined triangular patch on the dorsum; the male of E. ramella lacks the costal fold on the forewing [Bradley]. E. ramella flies later in the year than the similar E. bilunana and, like that species, comes freely to light. Larva feeds within catkins of Birch.

49.255 1138 Epinotia nisella (Clerck, 1759) - Common
Common in woodland, parks, marshes and freshwater margins throughout the British Isles. Widely distributed across much of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 12-17 mm. Differs from other Epinotia species of comparable size by its characteristic grey or cinereous coloration which, though often reduced, is present throughout its range of variation. Larva feeds within catkins of Salix and Populus sp. The distribution of f. cinereana, now considered to be a separate species (Epinotia cinereana), appears to be dependent on the presence of Aspen.

49.256 1138a Epinotia cinereana (Haworth, 1811) - None
Recently separated from Epinotia nisella. Distribution in Hampshire and Isle of Wight unclear - reported from scattered localities in VC11 and VC12 to date.
Although Epinotia cinereana was considered a distinct species and was included in Pierce & Metcalfes The Genitalia of the British Tortricidae (1914) which documented clear differences in the genitalia, this treatment was not followed by Bradley et al in their 1972 British checklist; Razowski also omitted the species from his European Tortricidae publications.

Mutanen et al, 2012 (Zootaxa) discussed the two species in their Holarctic study and laid out a clear case for their separation.

Epinotia cinereana has the blackish or reddish blotches in the forewing absent and gives an overall greyish impression showing blackish streaks in the forewing. The larvae are said to feed between spun leaves of Aspen Populus tremula. Epinotia nisella usually shows a more highly patterned forewing with blotches of black or reddish in the forewing or along the dorsum; in rare instances they can appear wholly greyish like E. cinereana. For new localities, and where Aspen is not found, specimens should be retained for examination of the genitalia for separation.

Records of this species would be particularly welcome, especially from localities which are known to be close to Aspen stands.

49.261 1157 Crocidosema plebejana Zeller, 1847 - Local
Local in gardens and on waste ground in parts of southern England. An adventive species, naturalised through accidental introduction from warmer climes, now fully naturalised. In Hampshire since the first record of this species at Martyr Worthy in 1961, it appears to have become established at low density along the coast, with a scattering of records inland and on the western end of the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 12-16 mm. The overall pale ochreous general coloration and the well-developed and relatively conspicuous, triangular pre-tornal marking are characteristic. The male is readily distinguished by the prominent cubital pecten on the hindwing [Bradley]. Larva feeds on shoots and seed capsules of Tree-mallow.

49.263 1188 Pelochrista caecimaculana (Hübner, [1799]) - Nationally Scarce A
Nationally scarce (Na) in dry pastures, downland and waste ground in parts of southern England and southern Wales. In Hampshire apparently always very rare, and the only place where it might be regarded as established is on Portsdown Hill. There is only one recent record from the Isle of Wight, at Shanklin in June 1995. Wingspan 14-20 mm. In general appearance reminiscent of certain Eucosma species, but distinguished by the poorly developed and inconspicuous ocellus which lacks metallic plumbeous edging [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Common Knapweed and Brown Knapweed.

49.275 1192 Eucosma conterminana (Guenée, 1845) - Local
Local in dry open areas in parts of southern England. In Hampshire first recorded in the Itchen Valley in 1976, and increasing in the south, where associated with an increase in the foodplant, Prickly Lettuce, and now well-established in the Portsmouth and Southsea area. Has recently started to appear elsewhere in the county (1999 in vice-county 12) and on the Isle of Wight (2004). Wingspan 15-19 mm. The pale yellowish brown general coloration of the forewing and the relatively conspicuous medio-dorsal blotch of light ground colour are characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds on flowerheads of Prickly Lettuce, Garden Lettuce and Great Lettuce, over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.279 1169 Gypsonoma dealbana (Frölich, 1828) - Common
Common in woodland throughout much of the British Isles, but not in northern Scotland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and common. Wingspan 11-15 mm. The nominate form, in which the forewing markings contrast with the ground colour, is reminiscent of G. sociana but can be distinguished by the cream-white frons and vertex of the head, which in G. sociana are clear white; the coloration of the head also distinguishes G. dealbana from other British Gypsonoma species [Bradley]. Larva feeds within buds and young shoots of Hazel, Hawthorn, Poplar and Sallow, subsequently living within a leaf-fold.

Common in woodland, gardens, orchards, parks and on freshwater margins throughout much of Britain. In Hampshire widespread but rather local in all but the east central area, where apparently absent. On the Isle of Wight, there are recent records only from Shanklin and Totland. Wingspan 12-15 mm. Distinguished from other Gypsonoma species by the clear white frons and vertex of the head; the strongly contrasting, plumbeous strigulate with black forewing markings and the white ground colour are also characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds within catkins of Black Poplar, Aspen and Sallow, subsequently burrowing into and feeding on leaf buds.

49.283 1167 Gypsonoma aceriana (Duponchel, [1843]) - Local
Local in woodland, gardens, orchards and parks throughout much of southern Britain. In Hampshire locally common amongst large poplars, mostly in the south-east, with only occasional scattered records elsewhere, and none on the Isle of Wight in recent years. Wingspan 13-15 mm. Distinguished from G. dealbana by the stronger and more extensive ochreous suffusion of the ground colour, the less angulated, straighter-edged basal patch and the black-centred ochreous apical spot of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva mines leaves and petioles of Poplar, living between leaves and petioles spun together with silk, subsequently burrowing into and feeding on stems.

Common in waste ground and rough meadows throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and reasonably common, although true status remains uncertain owing to confusion with E. cirsiana, with which formerly treated as conspecific. Wingspan 18-23 mm. The male is very distinctive, but the female may be confused with E. cnicicolana; larger than E. cirsiana with the male characteristically larger and lighter in coloration than the female [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots and lower stems of Musk Thistle and Spear Thistle.

49.295 1178 Notocelia roborana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) - Common
Common in gardens and hedgerows throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire widespread and fairly common. There have been no recent records from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 16-22 mm. This is one of three closely related and difficult to separate species (see E. trimaculana and E. rosaecolana). Differs from E. rosaecolana by the heavier basal patch which is darker and has the outer edge sharply defined and parallel with the termen [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Wild Rose and Cultivated Rose, living within a spun or rolled leaf, over-wintering as an egg.

49.297 1177 Notocelia rosaecolana (Doubleday, 1850) - Common
Common in gardens and hedgerows throughout much of Britain and western Ireland. In Hampshire widespread and fairly common. There have been very few recent records from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 16-20 mm. This is one of three closely related and difficult to separate species (see E. trimaculana and E. roborana). A generally larger species than E. trimaculana with the forewing somewhat broader and the costa more strongly curved; the general coloration of the forewing is lighter while the costal strigulae are finer and more oblique [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Wild Rose and Cultivated Rose, living within a spun or rolled leaf, over-wintering as an egg.

49.298 1176 Notocelia trimaculana (Haworth, 1811) - Common
Common in hedgerows, gardens and woodland throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire widespread but nowhere common, although the larva feeds on hawthorn, most records are at light. There have been no recent records from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 15-18 mm. This is one of three closely related and difficult to separate species (see E. rosaecolana and E. roborana). Differs from E. rosaecolana by its generally smaller size and comparatively narrow forewing which is somewhat darker in general coloration and has thicker, less oblique costal strigulae [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Hawthorn, living between leaves and shoots spun together with silk, over-wintering as an egg.

49.299 1208 Pseudococcyx posticana (Zetterstedt, 1839) - Nationally Scarce B
Nationally scarce (Nb) in pine woodland and on heathland throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire found mainly in the New Forest where, by dint of hard searching, hollowed-out, resinous buds on the lateral shoots of small Scots pine trees, which hold the larva, can be located — there are very few records in Hampshire outside the New Forest, including just one from north Hampshire. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 11-16 mm. Distinguished from Clavigesta sylvestrana by the light tawny-brown coloration of the labial palps, head, thorax and tegulae, which in C. sylvestrana are grey [Bradley]. Larva feeds on buds of Scots Pine.

49.300 1209 Pine Bud Moth Pseudococcyx turionella (Linnaeus, 1758) - Nationally Scarce B
Nationally scarce (Nb) in pine woodland throughout much of southern England and Scotland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight whilst concentrated in the New Forest, this species has turned up in Scots Pine woodland in other scattered locales. Wingspan 14-21 mm. Reminiscent of Clavigesta purdeyi in general appearance but readily distinguished by its much larger size, the ochreous-orange labial palpi and head and the white, infuscate hindwings [Bradley]. Larva feeds on buds of Scots Pine and Lodgepole Pine, causing some damage by selecting the central bud of a shoot, thereby aborting it.

Local in pine woodland and plantations throughout much of England and Wales, spreading into southern Scotland. In Hampshire widely distributed, but local and usually uncommon. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 10-12 mm. The smallest of this group of pine-feeding species, C. purdeyi differs from the allied C. sylvestrana by the pronounced ferruginous-ochreous coloration of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within needles of Scots Pine, Lodgepole Pine and Corsican Pine.

49.305 1210 Pine Shoot Moth Rhyacionia buoliana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) - Local
Local in pine woodland, plantations and nurseries throughout much of England and Wales, rare elsewhere. In Hampshire common in Scots Pine woodland, especially in young plantations. Recorded on the Isle of Wight for the first time since 1948 at Cranmore in 2004. Wingspan 16-24 mm. Distinguished from R. pinicolana by the straighter costa, the distinctly orange markings and the triangular pre-tornal marking of the forewing, and the generally darker hindwings [Bradley]. Larva feeds within needles and young shoots of Scots Pine, Lodgepole Pine and Corsican Pine, subsequently burrowing into and feeding on developing buds, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas.

49.306 1211 Rhyacionia pinicolana (Doubleday, 1850) - Common
Common in pine woodland and areas with scattered pine trees throughout England. In Hampshire locally common in woodland of Scots Pine, especially in the New Forest, and on the heaths in the north-east of the county; very rarely recorded on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 16-23 mm. Differs from Pine Shoot Moth R. buoliana by the more strongly marked costa, the ferruginous-chestnut coloration of the markings and the rounded apex of the pre-tornal marking of the forewing, and the paler hindwing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within needles and young shoots of Scots Pine, but is less likely than R. buoliana to cause the tree serious damage.

49.307 1212 Spotted Shoot Moth Rhyacionia pinivorana (Lienig & Zeller, 1846) - Common
Common in pine woodland and areas with scattered pines throughout the British Isles, more numerous in Scotland. Widespread and common in Hampshire. Recorded on the Isle of Wight for the first, and so far only, time at Freshwater in 1985. Wingspan 15-19 mm. The main confusion species is Pine Resin-gall Moth Retinia resinella, which differs in the ferruginous-brown general coloration of the forewing and the lighter hindwings with grey cilia [Bradley], but note that R. resinella is largely absent from southern England. Larva feeds within needles and young shoots of Scots Pine, subsequently burrowing into and feeding on developing buds.

49.309 1285 Dichrorampha plumbana (Scopoli, 1763) - Local
Local in rough meadows, dry grassland and waste ground throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire widespread, but sparsely recorded away from the extreme south-east, and very infrequent on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 11-14 mm. Generally smaller than D. sedatana and distinguished by the absence of pale yellow irroration in the basal third of the forewing; D. plumbana is also generally smaller than D. aeratana but is similar in forewing pattern and markings [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Yarrow and Ox-eye Daisy.

49.315 1281 Dichrorampha simpliciana (Haworth, 1811) - Local
Local on waste ground and roadside verges throughout England and Wales, most numerous in the south, but probably more widespread in Scotland than the records suggest. The distribution in Hampshire mirrors those areas in which trapping effort is concentrated, and the moth is probably more widely distributed than the records suggest. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1900. Wingspan 12-17 mm. One of the largest of the British species of Dichrorampha and distinguished by its comparatively broad wings and grey-brown appearance of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Mugwort.

49.316 1278 Dichrorampha sequana (Hübner, [1799]) - Local
Local in dry pastures, gardens, orchards, parks and waste ground throughout southern England and south Wales. In Hampshire fairly widespread, and perhaps under-recorded due to its day-flying habits, but not recorded on the Isle of Wight for many years; apparently readily colonises areas where Yarrow is allowed to thrive. Wingspan 9-11 mm. Day-flying in afternoon sunshine. Recognised by the conspicuous, vertical, cream-white rectangular medio-dorsal blotch of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Tansy and Yarrow.

Local in dry grassland, rough meadows, downland and scrub throughout much of Britain, more numerous in the south. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight appears to be one of the species which is benefiting from the increase in average summer temperatures in recent years, with a marked increase apparent in the last ten years. Wingspan 10-16 mm. Often found during the afternoon and warm evenings flying around the foodplants. Distinguished from D. alpinana and D. flavidorsana by the sombre general coloration of the forewing, which is suffused with comparatively dull ochreous-orange and has a dull and inconspicuous medio-dorsal blotch [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Yarrow and Tansy.

49.320 1274 Dichrorampha alpinana (Treitschke, 1830) - Local
Local in gardens, meadows and rough grassland in southern England and southern Wales. In Hampshire apparently extending its range in recent years, now widespread and generally common, and recorded for the first time on the Isle of Wight at Shanklin in 1996. Wingspan 13-15 mm. The moth flies over the foodplant in late afternoon and evening. Differs from D. flavidorsana by the comparatively broad medio-dorsal blotch of the forewing and the fuscous hindwing which is light basally; in the male the costal fold of the forewing is longer and extends to the median fascia [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Ox-eye Daisy.

49.324 1257 Pea Moth Cydia nigricana (Fabricius, 1794) - Common
Common in allotments, market gardens, farmland and rough ground throughout much of Britain, more numerous in the south; rare in Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight until recently a familiar sight in garden peas but now quite rare in some areas. Wingspan 12-16 mm. Distinguished by the overall uniform brown or grey-brown appearance of the forewing, which is finely irrorate with pale ochreous distally and has a poorly developed ocellus and usually conspicuous costal strigulae and interspaces; in the hindwing the white or cream-white cilia are characteristic and contrast strongly with the dark fuscous coloration of the wing; the male is further distinguished by the presence of a dorsal fold along the inner margin [Bradley]. Larva feeds within pods of Pea, Sweet Pea and Common Vetch, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas, over-wintering in a silken chamber.

Common on heathland and moorland throughout the British Isles, becoming established even on isolated gorse bushes. Common and widespread in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 11-16 mm. Reminiscent of C. splendana in general appearance but differs in its smaller size and the weaker ocellus of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seedpods of Gorse and, less frequently, Dyer's Greenweed, Petty Whin, Broom and Bird's-foot Trefoil, over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.330 1269 Cydia conicolana (Heylaerts, 1874) - Nationally Scarce B
Nationally scarce (Nb) in pine woodland and areas with scattered pine trees throughout southern England and southern Wales. There are scattered records from Hampshire with, on average, two records annually in recent years. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1949. Wingspan 10-12 mm. Distinguished from the much rarer C. coniferana by the narrow, transverse, metallic bluish plumbeous antemedian band and the lack of a medio-dorsal blotch [Bradley]. Larva feeds within cones of Scots Pine and Corsican Pine.

49.338 1261 Codling Moth Cydia pomonella (Linnaeus, 1758) - Common
Common in gardens, orchards and hedgerows throughout the British Isles. Widespread and common in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 14-22 mm. Dark specimens of C. splendana are reminiscent of C. pomonella, but the latter is distinguished by the more pronounced, transverse, dark brown strigulation and the large, distinctly coppery ocellus of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within fruit of Apple, Quince, Pear, Plum, Walnut and Whitebeam, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas, over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.342 1259 Cydia fagiglandana (Zeller, 1841) - Common
Common in beech and other deciduous woodland throughout much of south-east England. In Hampshire fairly widespread across much of the county, but remains distinctly uncommon on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 13-19 mm. Similar to C. splendana but differs by the more uniformly grey general appearance of the forewing, the ocellus being comparatively obscure and lacking the dark purplish coloration [Bradley]. Larva feeds within nuts of Beech, over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.344 1263 Cydia inquinatana (Hübner, [1799]) - Migrant
Formerly regarded as a very rare immigrant from mainland Europe, this species has been recorded in increasing numbers since the first authenticated British record was made at Minsmere, Suffolk, in 2009 with two further reports from the same county in Bawdsey, June 2010. It has established a breeding population in East Anglia and appears to be spreading. Discovered in north Hampshire in 2020 for the first time. Wingspan 12-16 mm. Larva feeds within fruit of Norway Maple, Field Maple and Sycamore.

49.345 1219 Lathronympha strigana (Fabricius, 1775) - Common
Common in open woodland and dry pastures throughout the British Isles, most numerous in southern England. Widespread and common in Hampshire except in the New Forest, where apparently absent. Recorded on the Isle of Wight on only a handful of occasions since the first record in 1977. Wingspan 13-17 mm. A distinctive species, recognised by the orange-ferruginous coloration of the forewing and the absence of fasciate markings [Bradley]. Larva feeds on various species of St John's-wort, living within a spun or rolled leaf.

49.346 1218 Selania leplastriana (Curtis, 1831) - Nationally Scarce A
Nationally scarce (Na) on sea cliffs in parts of southern England. First discovered in our area in 2020, when found to be common on the foodplant at a site near Freshwater Bay, Isle of Wight, and therefore possibly an undiscovered colony. Wingspan 12-14 mm. The large and relatively conspicuous, strigulate medio-dorsal blotch of white ground colour is reminiscent of Cydia jungiella which has similar forewing coloration; S. leplastriana may be distinguished by the distinctly triangular pre-tornal marking which reaches the middle of the wing, and in the male by the darker hindwings which in C. jungiella are white [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Wild Cabbage.

49.347 1241 Grapholita compositella (Fabricius, 1775) - Common
Common in dry grassland and flower meadows throughout much of the British Isles, most frequently in the south. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight recorded from all three vice-counties in open country amongst clovers, usually in small numbers but sometimes commonly, chiefly in south-eastern parts of the county, flying late in the afternoon sunshine. Wingspan 8-10 mm. Readily distinguished by its characteristic dorsal blotch which is divided into four white striae [Bradley]. Larva feeds within flowerheads of White Clover and Red Clover, subsequently living within a leaf-fold.

49.349 1242 Grapholita internana (Guenée, 1845) - Local
Local on heathland and moorland throughout much of Britain, more frequently in the south, and in southern Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight very locally common to abundant amongst gorse, but only recorded for the first time on the Island in 1992. Wingspan 9-10 mm. In both sexes the forewing markings are similar to those of G. pallifrontana, but the black subbasal line in the cilia is interrupted subapically and the general coloration of the wing is lighter than in G. pallifrontana and is irrorate with yellow distally; the male of G. internana is readily distinguished by its white hindwings [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seedpods of Gorse.

Nationally scarce (Na) in orchards in south-eastern England, where formerly known from only a few sites in Kent. In Hampshire first recorded from Waterlooville in 2003, with further records in the south-eastern corner of the county since. Recorded on the Isle of Wight for the first time at Freshwater in 2011. Wingspan 13-14 mm. Reminiscent of G. janthinana in general appearance but larger, with longer and relatively narrower forewings and darker fuscous-brown hindwings with white cilia. The male of G. lobarzewskii lacks the specialised scales present in the tornal area of the hindwing of G. janthinana [Bradley]. Larva feeds within fruit of Apple and Plum.

Local in gardens, orchards and hedgerows throughout much of southern England, southern Wales and southern Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight fairly widespread and not uncommon in gardens where there are plum trees, but apparently largely absent from the New Forest, and on the Island confined to the extreme west. Wingspan 10-15 mm. Similar to G. molesta but generally larger; distinguished from G. tenebrosana by the darker, greyish fuscous labial palpi and frons and the whitish irroration in the distal and medio-dorsal areas of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within fruit of Plum, Blackthorn, Wild Cherry and similar, over-wintering in a cocoon.

Common in hedgerows, gardens and woodland edges throughout much of England, Wales and southern Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight perhaps under-recorded away from the south-east of the county. Wingspan 9-11 mm. The comparatively small size, the relatively broad forewing with purplish or pinkish ochreous general coloration and ochreous-yellow admixture along the termen, and in the male the blackish scales and hair-like cilia in the tornal area of the hindwing, are characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds within berries of Hawthorn, living between berries spun together with silk, over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.363 1228 Pammene argyrana (Hübner, [1799]) - Local
Local in oak woodland throughout much of the British Isles. In south Hampshire, reasonably common in the New Forest and at Botley Wood, with scattered records elsewhere and in the north of the county, where its stronghold is in Pamber Forest; very rare on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 10-13 mm. Distinguished from P. giganteana by its smaller size, the broader and subquadrate medio-dorsal blotch and in the male by the heavy, sharply demarcated blackish brown border of the hindwing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within the bark of Oak, forming galls.

Differs from P. argyrana in the darker general coloration and the usually more obscure medio-dorsal blotch of the forewing, and in the male by the more uniformly infuscate hindwing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within bark of Oak, forming galls, and over-wintering as a pupa in a cocoon.

VC11: Romsey*, one, 18 May (NRJ)

49.367 1236 Pammene fasciana (Linnaeus, 1761) - Common
Local in deciduous, especially oak, woodland, and parkland throughout much of England and Wales, where more widely distributed in the south. In Hampshire common in oak and sweet chestnut woods throughout, but perhaps under-recorded on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 13-17 mm. The large, subfalcate medio-dorsal blotch, the presence of two or three sometimes contiguous black spots above the pre-tornal marking and the usually extensive series of black dashes in the ocellus are characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds within fruit of Sweet Chestnut and Oak, forming spongy galls, and over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.375 1234 Pammene regiana (Zeller, 1849) - Common
Common in parks, gardens and woodland throughout the British Isles. Widespread in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight, but rarely numerous, although cocoons may be found under the bark of old sycamores in numbers during the winter. Wingspan 13-16 mm. Differs from P. trauniana in having the medio-dorsal blotch of the forewing orange-yellow and subfalcate, its outer edge curving to meet the dorsum well before the tornus, the costal strigulae less widely separated by wedges of orange-yellow ground colour and the distinctly metallic bluish striae [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seeds of Sycamore and Norway Maple, over-wintering as a pupa in a cocoon.

49.376 1233 Pammene aurita Razowski, 1991 - None
Local in parks, gardens and woodland throughout much of England and Wales, spreading into southern Scotland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight first reported in the county in 1957, this species is now widespread but local. Wingspan 14-15 mm. The ferruginous-orange general coloration and the large pale medio-dorsal blotch are characteristic [Bradley]. The moth comes readily to light. Larva feeds within seeds of Sycamore.

49.377 1237 Pammene germmana (Hübner, [1799]) - Local
Local in hedgerows and open woodland throughout much of England, in recent years seldom found north of the Midlands. In Hampshire recorded in numbers only in Botley Wood and Pamber Forest, otherwise an uncommon and obscure species. First recorded from the Isle of Wight in 2012. Wingspan 10-14 mm. Day-flying. The satiny black-brown general coloration of the forewing, contrasting with the cream-white ground colour between the costal strigulae, and the bluish metallic striae are characteristic, however confusion with Strophedra weirana is possible [Bradley]. Larva feeds on shoots of Hawthorn, Blackthorn and Oak.

49.379 1272 Pammene aurana (Fabricius, 1775) - Common
Common in hedgerows, rough ground and woodland edges throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight recorded in most years, but not in numbers since the mid 1970s, when numerous in Botley Wood. Wingspan 9-13 mm. Often found resting on flowers of Hogweed on sunny afternoons. The unique forewing pattern readily distinguishes this species [Bradley]. Larva feeds on seeds of Hogweed, living between seeds spun together with silk, and over-wintering in a cocoon.

49.381 1221 Strophedra weirana (Douglas, 1850) - Local
Local in beech woodland across much of southern England. Fairly widely, but sparsely distributed across much of Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 10-12 mm. The relatively slender and attenuate forewing and the obscure and poorly defined fasciate markings and costal strigulae distinguish this species from S. nitidana [Bradley]; confusion with Pammene germmana is also possible. Larva feeds on Beech, living between leaves spun together with silk, and over-wintering as a pupa.
