49.253 [B&F: 1143] Epinotia fraternana (Haworth, 1811)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in coniferous woodland throughout much of Britain and south-western Ireland. In Hampshire known from two localities in southern Hampshire - Havant Thicket and Parnholt Wood - where it occurs amongst Giant Fir, but has not been recorded at Parnholt Wood since 1978. Distribution in Hampshire is similar to E. subsequana. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 10-14 mm. Differs from E. tedella by the tawny coloration of the forewing markings and the comparatively well-defined basal patch [Bradley]. Larva feeds on European Silver-fir, living between needles spun together with silk.
