49.145 [B&F: 1088] Pseudosciaphila branderiana (Linnaeus, 1758)

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) wherever there are stands of aspen, in woodland, gardens and parkland across much of southern England, occasionally north to Yorkshire. In Hampshire very local on a few sites, particularly Botley Wood and Pamber Forest, and seldom straying far. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1900. Wingspan 21-27 mm. One of the largest of the British Olethreutines, this species is further characterised by the general forewing coloration and the obsolete or obsolescent markings; the typical almost unicolorous form and the fasciate f. wahlbomiana appear to be equally frequent in occurrence [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Aspen, living within a spun or rolled leaf.
