49.113 [B&F: 0952] Commophila aeneana (Hübner, [1800])

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) on rough meadows and waste ground in scattered localities throughout southern England. An attractive, but very local and elusive, species in Hampshire, it has been found in numbers only in Botley Wood. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1900. Wingspan 13-17 mm. Day-flying. The bright orange-yellow ground colour and submetallic markings of the forewing are characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Common Ragwort.
