49.112 [B&F: 0955] Vine Moth (Eupoecilia ambiguella) (Hübner, 1796)

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) on heathland and woodland in parts of southern England. In Hampshire very local in the New Forest and Emer Bog in the south, and discovered in 1987 on Newtown Common in the north. On the Isle of Wight, recorded from a few sites in the far west. A distinctive species, readily recognised by the pale ochreous general coloration of the forewing and the contrasting heavy median fascia [Bradley]. Larva feeds within flowers of Alder Buckthorn, Honeysuckle and Grape-vine, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in vineyards in some areas, over-wintering in a case made from leaf fragments.
