Resident. Nat. Scarce B
A 'Nationally Scarce B' species. This very small macro is easily overlooked as a micro moth. Seemingly quite a local species, probably due to its foodplant, which isn't actually known at this time, but it is associated with wet areas. It has been recorded from a few scattered sites throughout the county, mainly in the west.
Wingspan : M & F, 14-15mm.
White-line Snout, and, because of its small size, it is often confused with micro moths.
Wet, boggy and marshy places.
Unknown in the wild. In captivity, cross-leaved heath, sphagnum moss and marsh cinquefoil.
Largely unknown. Probably overwinters as a larva or a pupa. Pupates in a pendulous cocoon suspended from the foodplant.
