32.023 [B&F: 0716] Agonopterix rotundella (Douglas, 1846)


Nationally scarce (Na) on downland and coastal cliffs in England and Wales, from Cornwall to Kent, northwards along the western coast as far as Cheshire; the Isle of Man, Yorkshire and Northumberland (MBGBI Vol 4 part 1); uncommon in Wales and Scotland. Very rare on the Isle of Wight, with just 13 records prior to the present century; however, increased recording since 2010 has turned up single records in most years. Not recorded from Hampshire to date. Wingspan 14-17 mm. Larva mines leaves of Wild Carrot, subsequently living within a leaf-roll.
