Notes: Found in open grassland, hillsides and clifftops, throughout central and eastern England and south-eastern Scotland, also in central and western Scotland and Ireland (MBGBI Vol 3). In Hampshire and Isle of Wight, there are scattered records from downland across all three vice-counties, but never common. Wingspan 8-9mm. The dark ciliary line and dark spots on the fold and at the apex of the cell are diagnostic (MBGBI Vol 3). Larva mines the leaves of Sheep's-fescue and Red Fescue.
