Main: (Crambidae / Crambinae)
63.103 [B&F: 1317] Catoptria verellus (Zincken, 1817)

 

Notes: Rare immigrant to southern England from mainland Europe. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight there are recent records from Southsea in 2001, Ventnor and Sandy Point in 2006, and two on the Island in 2009. Wingspan 17-18 mm. The scruffiest in appearance of British Crambids, and easily overlooked as a small, dusky C. falsella, or ignored altogether [Goater]. Voucher specimen should be retained for confirmation of identification. Larva feeds on mosses growing on Apple, Plum and Poplar, but there is no evidence of breeding in the UK.
