Endotricha flammealis

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

Wingspan 18-23 mm.

Another species which has an unusual resting posture. The front part of the body is raised up on the forelegs, and the wings held at an angle, with the edges touching the resting surface.

The larvae feed initially on a range of plants and bushes, and later amongst leaf-litter.

It occurs locally throughout the southern half of Britain, and flies during July and August, when it comes to light.
