In Hampshire recorded annually, but in small numbers and from widely scattered localities; first recorded fromthe Isle of Wight in 2013. Wingspan 9-10 mm. Flies in afternoon sunshine. Smaller than S. weirana with a shorter and less attenuated forewing and comparatively well-defined fasciate markings and costal strigulae [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Oak, living between leaves spun together with silk, and over-wintering as a pupa.
