49.179 [B&F: 1080] Olethreutes arcuella (Clerck, 1759)

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in woodland and on heaths in parts of the British Isles, except in the far north. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight a local and uncommon woodland species which is perhaps overlooked. Wingspan 15-18 mm. The moth is diurnal but occasionally it comes to light. The attractive and specialised forewing pattern readily distinguishes this species [Bradley]. Larva feeds on leaf litter and dead leaves.
