Bordered Pearl Paratalanta pandalis

(Hübner, [1825])

Wingspan c. 25-29mm.

This species is distributed across England and Wales and occurs in open woodland habitats, although it is less common in the northern part of its range. It also occurs in western Ireland.

The adults are quite similar to a number of other species and care is required in identifying species in this group.

The larvae feed on herbaceous plants such as wood sage (Teucrium scorodonia) and goldenrod (Solidago virgaurea, the later stages feeding from a portable case constructed from leaves.
