47.004 [B&F: 0484] Epermenia aequidentellus (Hofmann, 1867)


Nationally scarce (Na) in southern England, where predominantly coastal. Restricted in Hampshire to rough ground and dry grassland around the south-eastern harbours; claims from other areas of the county should be accompanied by photographic or other evidence. The only recent record from the Isle of Wight was of mines at Rew Down, Ventnor in August 2003. Wingspan 9-12 mm. Larva mines leaves of Wild Carrot and Burnet-saxifrage, subsequently living within a silken web.
