Pandemis dumetana

(Treitschke, 1835)

Wingspan c. 20mm.

A rather local species, with a somewhat scattered distribution between South-east and Northern England. It occurs both in damp fenland habitats, and drier, chalky habitats.

The polyphagous larva feeds on a range of plants and trees, either in a rolled leaf, or sometimes in the flowers.

Adult moths fly during July and August and are attracted to light.
