72.003 [B&F: 2477] Snout (Hypena proboscidalis) (Linnaeus, 1758)

 

Notes: Common in a wide range of habitats, including woodland, scrub, hedgerows, gardens, rough meadows and marshes throughout the British Isles. Widespread and common in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 34-40 mm. The combination of clear brown fascia and long, upturned palps make this a fairly unmistakable species, but occasionally individuals may lose their snout, or are mottled and have no cross-lines. Larva feeds on Stinging Nettle.
