32.026 [B&F: 0698] Agonopterix kaekeritziana (Linnaeus, 1767)

 

Notes: Local on downland, open grassland, roadside verges and flower meadows throughout much of the British Isles, except for parts of the Highlands of Scotland and Shetland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and frequent amongst knapweed. Wingspan 19-23 mm. Most likely to be confused with A. bipunctosa and A. pallorella, both of which lack any trace of rusty orange coloration and have a more definitive subdorsal dot near the base of the forewing (MBGBI Vol 4 part 1). Larva feeds on Common Knapweed and Greater Knapweed, living within a spun or rolled leaf.
