Anacampsis temerella

(Lienig & Zeller, 1846)

Wingspan c. 12mm.

This mainly coastal, nationally scarce species is distributed mainly in the north-west coastal area of England and Wales, although it has been recorded in Scotland and possibly in parts of southern England.

The adults fly in July and August, and are darker than the other British Anacampsis species, with velvety markings.

The larvae feed in a spinning in the terminal shoots of creeping willow Salix repens.
