32.016 [B&F: 0696] Agonopterix propinquella (Treitschke, 1835)


Local in waste ground and rough grassland throughout much of England, Wales, southern Scotland and southern Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight there have been very few recent records of this species, and it has been recorded in recent years only from Sherborne St John and Blagden Lodge, Wildhern, in the north of the county, and Shanklin on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 16-19 mm. The most likely confusion species is A. subpropinquella, which see for differences. Larva feeds on Creeping Thistle and Spear Thistle, living within a spun or rolled leaf.
