Telechrysis tripuncta

(Haworth, 1828)

Wingspan c. 12mm.

Occurring in southern England and in parts of north-west England and Wales, this distinctive species is however fairly local, occupying woodland habitats.

The feeding habits are relatively unknown, but it is believed to feed in dead or rotting wood.

Adult moths are on the wing in May and June, being rather crepuscular in nature.
