49.221 [B&F: 1161] Rhopobota stagnana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in damp woodland and pastures (on Devil's-bit Scabious) and downland (on Small Scabious) throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight mainly confined to chalk downland sites such as Martin Down and Portsdown, and somewhat erratic in appearance. Wingspan 12-18 mm. The male differs from R. myrtillana by its larger size and the more uniform pale grey general coloration of the forewing; the female is often similar in size but can be distinguished by its relatively narrow and pointed forewing and the diffuse and obtusely angulated basal patch [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Small Scabious and Devil's-bit Scabious.
