49.204 [B&F: 1122] Ancylis obtusana (Haworth, 1811)

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in woodland, hedgerows and heathland throughout much of southern England. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight recorded less than annually from scattered localities, mainly in south Hampshire, and most notably in Botley Wood. Wingspan 10-13 mm. Somewhat paler in general coloration than A. mitterbacheriana and slightly smaller; the shallowly convex basal patch extending from the dorsum to the costa is characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Alder Buckthorn and Buckthorn, living between leaves spun together with silk.
