1294 Crambus pascuella
(Linnaeus, 1758)Wingspan 21-26 mm.
Common in most grassy areas of Britain, this species has a distinct whitish streak against a yellow-brown ground colour. This pattern is similar to several other species, and they can be rather difficult to separate.
Flying from June to August, the adults are on the wing at night, when they are attracted to light, but are easily disturbed during the day from their grassy resting-places.
