72.053 [B&F: 2489] Fan-foot (Herminia tarsipennalis) Treitschke, 1835

 

Notes: Common in broad-leaved woodland, hedgerows and gardens throughout the British Isles. Widespread and common in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 31-33 mm. The most likely confusion species is Common Fan-foot Pechipogo strigilata, a rare and declining species, despite the name, which is paler and less deeply coloured, with fainter, less well-defined cross-lines; by comparison Z. tarsipennalis is a rich, deep brown, with dark, almost black, cross-lines. Larva feeds on the withered leaves of various deciduous trees and shrubs, including Beech and Oak.
