Neofriseria singula

(Staudinger, 1876)

Wingspan c.14 mm.

This rather scarce species occupies heathland habitats and is found nowadays mainly in the south-east of England and the Brecks of East Anglia, although there are earlier records from north-west England.

The larvae feed on sheep's sorrel (Rumex acetosella) in a tube made from silk on the lower stem.

Adult moths fly in June and July when they may be attracted to light.
