49.308 [B&F: 1213] Elgin Shoot Moth (Rhyacionia logaea) Durrant, 1911


Nationally scarce (Na) in pine woodland in parts of Scotland. Unlikely to be recorded in Hampshire or on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 14-18 mm. Reminiscent of Pseudococcyx posticana but distinguished by the narrower and more attenuate forewings and in the male by the strongly biciliate antennae [Bradley]. Larva feeds within needles and young shoots of Scots Pine and Lodgepole Pine, over-wintering as a pupa.
