Main: (Hepialidae / Hepialinae)
03.003 [B&F: 0018] Map-winged Swift (Korscheltellus fusconebulosa) (De Geer, 1778)

 

Notes: Local, on moorland and heathland, and in open woodland and rough pastures, throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire, very local amongst Bracken, with the north-east of the county remaining a stronghold; there are no recent records from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 32-50mm. Distinguished from its congeners by the conspicuously barred cilia of fore- and hindwing (MBGBI Vol 1). Larva feeds within roots of Bracken, over-wintering twice, also found in areas where Bracken does not occur, where the foodplant may be Red Fescue.
