Notes: Nationally scarce (Na) in open woodland on chalky soils in parts of England and Wales, more numerous in the south. In Hampshire has become very scarce, with scattered and infrequent records across the chalk, mainly in north Hampshire and most recently at Broughton Down, West Park and Lymington. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight for many years. Wingspan 25-29 mm. The most likely confusion species are Sitochroa verticalis and female European Corn Borer Ostrinia nubilalis, from which separated by bordered appearance of fore- and, especially, hind-wing. Larva feeds on Wood Sage, Wild Marjoram, Goldenrod, Black Horehound, Wild Thyme, Corn Mint and Stinging Nettle.
