49.169 [B&F: 1069] Celypha aurofasciana (Haworth, 1811)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Na) in woodland in parts of southern England and western Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight there are three old records, at Bembridge in 1875, Emery Down in 1900 and Baddesley Great Covert in 1929, but nothing was heard of it since until 2012, when it was found to be common in the Ventnor, Isle of Wight garden of Fred Woodworth, where it has been annual ever since, and found in three other localities nearby. Wingspan 12-14 mm. The narrow and apically rather rounded forewing and the typically conspicuous, broad, yellow fasciate area between the basal patch and median fascia distinguish this species; the specialised lobe at the base of the hindwing of the male is also characteristic [Bradley]. Larva feeds on various mosses and various liverworts, often on tree trunks, living within a silken tube or tent.
