Main: (Oecophoridae / Oecophorinae)
28.013 [B&F: 0637] Crassa tinctella (Hübner, 1796)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in ancient woodland throughout much of southern Britain, from Kent to Devon in the south and Lincolnshire and North Wales in the north (MBGBI Vol 4 part 1). In Hampshire sparsely recorded in the south of the county, with only one recent record from the north and none from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 14-16 mm. Resembles Batia unitella, but ochreous-orange rather than golden-brown, and lacks the contrasting orange head and palps of B. unitella; also, the costa is convex in B. unitella, straight in C. tinctella. Larva feeds on lichens growing on Willow.
