Unlikely to be recorded in Hampshire or on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 18-28 mm. Both sexes differ from A. podana in the whitish ochreous suffusion in the costal half of the hindwing, and the male differs further in lacking orange coloration in the apical area [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Bog-myrtle, living within a spun or rolled leaf.
