Main: (Incurvariidae / Incurvariinae)
08.001 [B&F: 0129] Incurvaria pectinea Haworth, 1828

 

Notes: Local in woodland and heathland throughout the British Isles, more numerous in the north. In Hampshire fairly well-distributed, but largely absent from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 12-16 mm. The main confusion species are I. masculella and I. oehlmanniella, but I. pectinea is less distinctly marked. Larva mines leaves of Silver and Downy Birch, and Hazel, living within a movable case, subsequently feeding in fallen leaves, and over-wintering as a pupa.
