(Stainton, 1849)Wingspan 19 -24 mm.
Agonopterix ciliella is widespread throughout Britain, flying at night in suitable weather from August to May, and sometimes coming to light. It can be distinguished from the commoner A. heracliana by the five brownish lines in the cilia near the base of the hindwing where heracliana only has one.
Larvae feed from June to September on a variety of umbelliferous plants.
