5.004 BF121
Pseudopostega crepusculella

(Zeller, 1839)

Wingspan 7-10.5 mm

Fairly well distributed throughout the British Isles, though relatively local, occupying damp areas such as fens, alder carrs and similar habitats.

The early life-stages are not described, as the species is generally only seen as an adult moth. It is however, believed to be associated with mint (Mentha).

The adults fly during June and July and can be attracted to light.
