49.315 [B&F: 1281] Dichrorampha simpliciana (Haworth, 1811)

 

Notes: Local on waste ground and roadside verges throughout England and Wales, most numerous in the south, but probably more widespread in Scotland than the records suggest. The distribution in Hampshire mirrors those areas in which trapping effort is concentrated, and the moth is probably more widely distributed than the records suggest. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1900. Wingspan 12-17 mm. One of the largest of the British species of Dichrorampha and distinguished by its comparatively broad wings and grey-brown appearance of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within roots of Mugwort.
