Main: (Gelechiidae / Apatetrinae)
35.036 [B&F: 0747] Chrysoesthia sexguttella (Thunberg, 1794)

 

Local on waste ground, farmland and other open areas throughout much of the British Isles, but absent from the Northern Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight still reasonably common along the coast in the south-east of the county and on the Island, but remains very scarce in north Hampshire. Wingspan 8-10 mm. The fuscous imago has pale yellow spots, but is seldom encountered, and the species is more likely to be recorded in the larval stage, when larvae may be obtained by sweeping the foodplant. Larva mines leaves of Goosefoot and Orache.
