Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.192 [B&F: 1103] Endothenia ericetana (Humphreys & Westwood, 1845)


Local in rough pastures, flower meadows and farmland throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire uncommon, most frequent in the south-east, apparently absent from the New Forest, and very sparsely distributed in the north of the county. There are only two recent records from the Isle of Wight, both from Totland. Wingspan 14-20 mm. Similar to E. quadrimaculana but smaller; the forewing has a more uniform ochreous-brown or reddish brown general appearance and lacks the strong black admixture in the median fascia medially [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots and lower stems of Marsh Woundwort, Hedge Woundwort and Corn Mint.
