49.346 [B&F: 1218] Selania leplastriana (Curtis, 1831)

 

Nationally scarce (Na) on sea cliffs in parts of southern England. First discovered in our area in 2020, when found to be common on the foodplant at a site near Freshwater Bay, Isle of Wight, and therefore possibly an undiscovered colony. Wingspan 12-14 mm. The large and relatively conspicuous, strigulate medio-dorsal blotch of white ground colour is reminiscent of Cydia jungiella which has similar forewing coloration; S. leplastriana may be distinguished by the distinctly triangular pre-tornal marking which reaches the middle of the wing, and in the male by the darker hindwings which in C. jungiella are white [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Wild Cabbage.
