35.101 [B&F: 0802a] Gelechia sororculella (Hübner, [1817])

 

Notes: Common, in woodland, scrubland and marshes, throughout Britain. Possibly under-recorded in Hampshire, given the widespread nature of the foodplant. Wingspan 13-15mm. A brown gelechiid which is distinguished from its congeners by the distinctive white ringed discal spot splitting a black streak along the fold, and a pale angulate postmedian fascia. Larva feeds on catkins and leaves of Goat Willow and Grey Willow, living within a spinning.
