Eulamprotes unicolorella

(Duponchel, [1843])

Wingspan c.10-13mm.

This small and rather unassuming species is distributed widely, though patchy and local, across parts of England and Wales, and into Scotland, but is probably somewhat overlooked.

The life history is not well documented, but it is thought the foodplant may be among the St. John's-wort family (Hypericum).

Adult moths fly between May and July, in sunshine.
