28.012 [B&F: 0644] Borkhausenia fuscescens (Haworth, 1828)

 

Notes: Common in woodland, hedgerows, farmland and farm buildings throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire widespread and reasonably common, but not recorded from the Isle of Wight in recent years. Wingspan 9-12 mm. A consistent feature is the large, distinct discal stigma. Larva feeds on dead leaves, detritus in bird nests and vegetable waste, living within a silken case.
