Main: (Gelechiidae / Gelechiinae)
35.148 [B&F: 0772] Carpatolechia fugitivella (Zeller, 1839)

 

Notes: Local in woodland, parks, gardens and hedgerows throughout much of Britain, except for the Scottish Highlands; rare in Ireland. In Hampshire the main population is centred around Portsea Island and from Fareham to Havant, with an outlying record from Brockenhurst in 1977; in the north there is just one record, from Micheldever, in 2008. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1947. Wingspan 12-15 mm. The most likely confusion species is Carpatolechia notatella, which see for differences. Larva feeds on Elm, living between leaves spun together with silk, over-wintering as an egg.
