49.115 [B&F: 0942] Aethes piercei Obraztsov, 1952

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in dry pastures and downland in parts of the British Isles. Not recorded in Hampshire or on the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 15-24 mm. Differs from A. hartmanniana by its larger size, the generally darker coloration of the forewing, the more strongly angulate median fascia, and the silver-white spots which usually do not form continuous striae [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Devil's-bit Scabious.
