49.206 [B&F: 1121] Ancylis upupana (Treitschke, 1835)

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in woodland and heathland in parts of southern England. In Hampshire rare, but also probably overlooked on account of its secretive habits; there are recent records from Chandlers Ford, Botley Wood, Southsea, Emer Bog, Havant Thicket and West Park, Damerham. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 13-20 mm. A distinctive species in general appearance, characterised by the almost uniform dark brown or fuscous coloration of the forewing, with the exception of the apical and terminal areas which are ferruginous-orange [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Elm and Birch, living between leaves spun together with silk.
