Udea lutealis

(Hübner, [1809])

Wingspan 23-26 mm.

This very common species throughout Britain is fairly easily recognised by the pale creamy forewings and darker cross-lines and outlined shapes.

The caterpillars live in spring on a wide variety of herbaceous plants, including bramble (Rubus).

Flying at night between July and August, it can be found in any suitable habitat.
