45.021 [B&F: 1507] Dowdy Plume (Stenoptilia zophodactylus) (Duponchel, 1840)

 

Notes: Local on sea cliffs, dry grassland and sand-dunes throughout much of England. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight has been recorded in the past from all three vice-counties, but there are no recent records from north Hampshire, and the species is probably under-recorded in the south and on the Island. Wingspan 16-23 mm. Larva feeds on flowers and seeds of Centaury, Yellow-wort and Gentian.
