Main: (Pyralidae / Phycitinae)
62.024 [B&F: 1445] Rhodophaea formosa (Haworth, 1811)

 

Notes: Local in hedgerows throughout much of south-east England. Distributed widely across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, and apparently increasing again after the sharp decreases associated with Dutch Elm Disease. Wingspan 20-23 mm. This species can be recognised by the soft red and grey mottling of the forewing, and prominent median blotch. Larva feeds on Elm, living within a spun or rolled leaf, and over-wintering as a pupa.
