49.299 [B&F: 1208] Pseudococcyx posticana (Zetterstedt, 1839)


Nationally scarce (Nb) in pine woodland and on heathland throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire found mainly in the New Forest where, by dint of hard searching, hollowed-out, resinous buds on the lateral shoots of small Scots pine trees, which hold the larva, can be located — there are very few records in Hampshire outside the New Forest, including just one from north Hampshire. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 11-16 mm. Distinguished from Clavigesta sylvestrana by the light tawny-brown coloration of the labial palps, head, thorax and tegulae, which in C. sylvestrana are grey [Bradley]. Larva feeds on buds of Scots Pine.
