Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.291 [B&F: 1181] Epiblema grandaevana (Lienig & Zeller, 1846)


Vulnerable (proposed as a future Red Data Book species) on waste ground and cliffs in parts of north-eastern England, predominantly coastal. Unlikely to be recorded in Hampshire or on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 21-36 mm. The largest and most robust of the British Olethreutinae, this species is further distinguished from E. turbidana by the fasciculate-ciliate antennae and the lighter ochreous-brown general coloration of the forewing, which lacks an ocellus [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Colt's-foot and Butterbur.
