Notes: Immigrant from mainland Europe, appearing since 1991 as a migrant on the south coast, in some years arriving in sufficient numbers to breed. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight first recorded in modern times in 1991, appearing as an extremely scarce immigrant until recently, but several records in the past few years indicate a small resident population, possibly centred on the Warsash area. Wingspan 24-30 mm. Larva feeds on various lichens, some evidence of breeding in the UK.
