49.266 [B&F: 1200] Eucosma hohenwartiana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

 

Notes: Common in dry open areas and grassland throughout much of the British Isles; rare in Scotland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and common. Wingspan 15-22 mm. Large specimens of this species may be confused with E. cana but can be distinguished by the darker ground colour of the forewing which lacks longitudinal striations [Bradley]. Formerly conspecific with E. parvulana and E. fulvana, which see. Larva feeds within flowerheads of Common Knapweed.
