49.165 [B&F: 1066] Celypha woodiana (Barrett, 1882)


Nationally scarce (Na) and virtually restricted to orchards in Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire, a priority species under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan. Unlikely to be recorded in Hampshire or on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 16-18 mm. A distinctive species, but in forewing markings it is similar to Apotomis lineana from which it may be distinguished by its smaller size, comparatively narrow forewings with a relatively straight costa, the white ground colour and more contrasting markings, the dark labial palpi, head and thorax, and the grey cilia of the hindwing [Bradley]. Larva mines leaves of Mistletoe.
