Narycia duplicella

(Goeze, 1783)

Wingspan 7-12 mm.

A fairly common species throughout England and Wales, extending into southern Scotland, flying in June and July.

The female moth is slightly smaller than the male, and both can be found resting on tree trunks during the flight period.

The larva lives in a case, and attaches itself to a tree-trunk, fence or other lichen-covered surface.
