1481 Homoeosoma sinuella
(Fabricius, 1794)Wingspan 18-23 mm.
This species lives in open habitat on dry soils on old dunes, limestone and chalk grassland, waste ground, embankments etc. in England and Wales as far north as Cumbria and Durham, and in Wicklow, Ireland (J. Langmaid, in litt.).
Fairly distinctive with its yellowish ground colour and darker banding, it is one of the easier species to identify in its group. The usual flight period is between June and August.
The larva feeds and lives in the rootstock of ribwort plantain (Plantago lanceolata) and other plantain species.
