Main: (Tortricidae / Tortricinae)
49.111 [B&F: 0954] Eupoecilia angustana (Hübner, [1799])

 

Notes: Common on woodland edges, mountains and heathland throughout the British Isles. Widespread and common in Hampshire but not recorded on the Isle of Wight since 1975. Wingspan 11-15 mm. Apart from the somewhat confusing Shetland and Orkney subspecies, most closely resembles Vine Moth E. ambiguella, from which distinguished by the narrower and relatively diffuse median fascia of the forewing and the presence of a terminal fascia [Bradley]. Larva feeds within flowers of Greater Plantain, Ribwort Plantain, Yarrow and Heather.
