49.142 [B&F: 0960] Falseuncaria ruficiliana (Haworth, 1811)

 

Local on downland, heathland and mosses throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire mainly restricted to downland sites such as Martin Down and Portsdown in the south, and Noar Hill in the north. On the Isle of Wight, has been recorded in the past, but there has been no recent records. Wingspan 12-15 mm. The lack of rose coloration in the forewing and the comparatively broad whitish-edged median fascia distinguish this species from F. degreyana [Bradley]. Larva feeds within seedheads of Cowslip and Lousewort, over-wintering in a cocoon.
