Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.179 [B&F: 1080] Olethreutes arcuella (Clerck, 1759)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in woodland and on heaths in parts of the British Isles, except in the far north. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight a local and uncommon woodland species which is perhaps overlooked. Wingspan 15-18 mm. The moth is diurnal but occasionally it comes to light. The attractive and specialised forewing pattern readily distinguishes this species [Bradley]. Larva feeds on leaf litter and dead leaves.
