(B4) BF193
Canephora hirsuta

(Poda, 1761)


Wingspan c.23-26mm. (male)

This species' status on the British list is based on a 19th century record about which there is some doubt.

A resident of mainland Europe, the males are reminiscent of Acanthopsyche atra, the females wingless.

The larvae form a portable case from fragments of grass and plant material.
