Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in deciduous woodland and woodland margins, on chalky soils, in England from the Wash-Mersey line southwards and also in the north; in Wales from Glamorgan (MBGBI Vol 3). In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight this species occurs along the borders of woods on calcareous downland, and has been found in several localities in the county, notably at Leckford and Stockbridge Down in the north, and Portsdown NR and Oxenbourne in the south. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1938. Wingspan 8-9 mm. Imago similar to many of the Elachista species, although the white band on the antenna at three-quarters is distinctive. Larva mines leaves of Wild Basil.
