Lampronia luzella

(Hübner, [1817])

Wingspan c. 12mm.

Although widely distributed throughout much of Britain, this species is rather local and scarce, and little is known of its life history in this country, although observations suggest that the moth is associated with bramble (Rubus).

The adults have four yellowish-white spots on the forewing, against a purplish-brown ground colour.

Adult moths are on the wing from May to July and fly in afternoon sunshine.
