49.209 [B&F: 1119a] Ancylis diminutana (Haworth, 1811)


Local in woodland throughout England and Wales. Extremely rare and local in Hampshire, where known from a handful of sites. A report from Walters Copse in 2011 - a mention by Fassnidge in the early 20th century could refer to A. geminana. Wingspan 13-15 mm. Very similar to, and formerly conspecific with, A. geminana and A. subarcuana, from which separated by small size and in the terminal part of the longitudinal streak which is not arched above the tornal area but is nearly straight to below the apex [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Eared Willow and Grey Willow, living between leaves spun together with silk, and over-wintering in a cocoon.
