49.242 [B&F: 1145] Epinotia nanana (Treitschke, 1835)


Nationally scarce (Nb) in coniferous woodland and plantations throughout much of the British Isles, but not in northern Scotland. In Hampshire local and uncommon, perhaps under-recorded due to its nondescript appearance. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight until 2020, when two specimens were taken in Shanklin. Wingspan 9-11 mm. The smallest of the British Epinotia species, characterised by its general dark coloration and obscure markings [Bradley]. Larva mines leaves of Norway Spruce, living between needles spun together with silk.
