Main: (Tortricidae / Tortricinae)
49.114 [B&F: 0941] Aethes hartmanniana (Clerck, 1759)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) on chalk downland throughout England and Wales, but distribution poorly known due to confusion with A. piercei. In Hampshire recorded this century from St Catherine's Hill and Portsdown only, the former not since 2001; previously present at such sites as Broughton Down, Old Winchester Hill and Noar Hill. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1981, at Brading Down, but it may still occur there. Wingspan 15-23 mm. Differs from A. piercei in its smaller size, the lighter and often distinctly yellow general coloration of the forewing, the more obtusely angled median fascia, and the silver-white spots which coalesce and form continuous striae [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Field Scabious and Small Scabious.
