Apotomis capreana

(Hübner, [1817])

Wingspan 17-22 mm.

Rather resembling A. betuletana, this species can usually be distinguished by the hook-like projection of the white area into the black of the forewing.

The larvae feed in spun leaves of goat willow (Salix caprea) during the spring, producing moths between June and August.

Relatively uncommon, it occurs mainly in the southern counties of England and Wales, with scattered records from elsewhere, including Scotland.
