Main: (Gelechiidae / Gelechiinae)
35.094 [B&F: 0796] Aroga velocella (Zeller, 1839)

 

Notes: Local on heathland, moorland and in woodland clearings throughout much of England. Very local and uncommon in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight, where most frequent on the coast, and around the eastern heaths, but apparently absent from much of the New Forest. Wingspan 14-19 mm. Flies in afternoon sunshine and at night. A relatively distinctive and well-marked gelechiid, but confirmation of worn or poorly marked specimens only possible by dissection of the genitalia. Larva feeds on Sheep's Sorrel, living within a silken tube or tent.
