49.265 [B&F: 1201] Eucosma cana (Haworth, 1811)

 

Notes: Common in rough ground and flower meadows throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and common, probably under-recorded on the Island. Wingspan 16-22 mm. Differs from E. hohenwartiana by the paler ground colour of the forewing and the distinctive longitudinal striation in the discal area [Bradley]. Larva feeds within flowerheads of Thistle Carduus/Cirsium and Common Knapweed.
