Bryotropha basaltinella

(Zeller, 1839)

Wingspan c. 11mm.

Having a somewhat disjunct distribution in Britain, this moth occurs in many of the southern English counties, and then is rather scattered northwards to Northumberland.

Adult moths are on the wing between late May and August, often near buildings.

The larvae feed on mosses during the spring.
