Ephestia woodiella

Richards & Thomson, 1932

[Synonyms: Ephestia unicolorella]

Wingspan 14-20 mm.

Unlike most of its congeners, this species is not a pest of dried foods in warehouses and kitchens, and occurs out-of-doors, most probably feeding on dried leaves and other plant matter.

It is relatively scarce, and occurs in southern England, flying between June and September, when it can be attracted to light.
