Crambus ericella

(Hübner, [1813])

Wingspan 22-24 mm.

A distinctive dark-coloured Crambid, with clearly defined white markings, this is a rather local species, occurring on moorland in parts of Scotland and northern England.

The larval stages are undescribed, but the adults fly during late afternoon and evening in July and August, and can be attracted by bright lights.
