1020 Grey Tortrix Cnephasia stephensiana
(Doubleday, 1849)Wingspan 18-22 mm.
As its English name suggests, this is quite a greyish-brown moth. Specimens from the southern part of the British Isles are often darker than those from further north and Scotland, some of which have an almost whitish ground colour.
Flying during July and August from dusk onwards, it can be found in a variety of habitats, and the larvae feed on a range of herbaceous plants.
