Main: (Tineidae / Tineinae)
12.039 [B&F: 0230] Monopis crocicapitella (Clemens, 1859)

 

Notes: Local and occasionally numerous around areas with flour, cereals, natural fibres and captive birds such as poultry and doves. More restricted than M. obviella, in maritime areas as far north as Yorkshire and especially in the south-west and Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight frequent only in the south-east of the county. Wingspan 10-16 mm. Very similar to M. obviella, which has the forewing with a pale yellow, not ochreous, dorsal streak and pale irroration limited to a sprinkling of whitish scales near costa; also, the hindwing of M. obviella is dark fuscous, not pale grey (MBGBI Vol 2). Larva feeds on detritus in bird nests, dry vegetable matter and similar.
