49.225 [B&F: 1205a] Spilonota laricana (Heinemann, 1863)

 

Notes: Local in woodland with larch throughout England, Wales and southern Ireland. Distinctly uncommon in Hampshire, where recorded regularly only in the south-east of the county. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 12-16 mm. Formerly regarded as a dark form of Bud Moth S. ocellana, from which distinguished by the comparatively narrow forewings and the nearly pure white ground colour coarsely strigulate with blackish grey [Bradley]. Larva feeds within bark of European Larch, living between needles spun together with silk, and over-wintering in a silken chamber.
