Main: (Gelechiidae / Gelechiinae)
35.133 [B&F: 0832] Caryocolum blandella (Douglas, 1852)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in hedgerows and woodland throughout much of England, Wales and southern Ireland. In Hampshire has been recorded in the past from the Avon Valley, in the vicinity of Portsmouth Harbour, and around Selborne. On the Isle of Wight, the first recent records for some years were received from Freshwater in 1997 and 2000. Wingspan 9.5-14.5 mm. C. blandulella is generally smaller and whiter and lacks a distinct row of terminal spots; C. blandelloides, C. kroesmanniella and C. huebneri lack the very dark bar from costa to fold which completely obscures the costal and plical spots (MBGBI Vol 4 part 2). Larva feeds on shoots of Greater Stitchwort, subsequently feeding on the seed heads.
