49.103 [B&F: 0932] Phalonidia affinitana (Douglas, 1846)

 

Notes: Local in saltmarshes throughout much of England, Wales and Ireland, predominantly coastal. In Hampshire locally common in salt-marshes, from Hurst Castle to Sandy Point, with a few inland records in the south. Under-recorded in the Isle of Wight, but recent years have seen reports from Newtown, Freshwater and Norton Spit. Wingspan 13-16 mm. Distinguished from other species of Phalonidia and from species of Gynnidomorpha by the median fascia being strongly developed in the dorsal half of the wing and obsolescent costally [Bradley]. Larva feeds within flowerheads of Sea Aster.
