28.021 [B&F: 0651] Oecophora bractella (Linnaeus, 1758)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Na) in ancient woodland in parts of southern England and southern Wales. In Hampshire larvae of this species were discovered in the spring of 1983 in habitat similar to that of E. oliviella, in Harewood Forest; this remains the only known locality in the county for this very rare and local species. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 12-17 mm. Flies from dawn to sunrise and, less often, after dark, when occasional at light. Larva feeds on dead wood and various fungi.
