Schrankia costaestrigalis

(Stephens, 1834) 2484 / 72.061

Morley's Final Catalogue: Hitherto supposed very rare, noted only at Beccles and Stowmarket. But both-that the species be distinct is most improbable-flew to light and sugar at Fritton marshes and those of the Waveney at North Cove in the upmost profusion in September 1932-4 (D, Mr); and the former, which occurs at Barton Mills (Waters), was taken at Blythburgh and Benacre Broad in 1933-6 (Mly).

Recent Suffolk Status: Fairly common in the right habitats in the county.

Life history: Single-brooded in the summer, although Suffolk data seems to suggest it is now double-brooded flying again in early autumn.

Identification: Could be confused with various species of Pyralid due to its small size. White-line snout is a slightly larger moth with the white cross-line extending right across the wing and not interrupted at halfway like Pinion-streaked snout.

Habitat: Wet woodland, fens, wet meadows and other marshy areas.

Recorded in 35 (60%) of 58 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1932.
Last Recorded in 2023.
