72.047 [B&F: 2045] Hoary Footman (Eilema caniola) (Hübner, [1808])

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) on sea cliffs and shingle beaches, and inland on quarries, from Kent to Anglesey. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight first recorded on the Island in 1992 and, on the mainland, in 1997, now increasingly seen in the north-east of the county where it is spreading from the east. Wingspan 28-35 mm. Very similar to Scarce Footman E. complana, but hindwing very pale yellowish grey (ochreous yellow in Scarce Footman), a feature which is difficult to see on live specimens. Larva feeds on various lichens, often on rocks.
