Acleris emargana
Notch-wing Button

(Fabricius, 1775)1062 / 49.071

Morley’s Final Catalogue: Frequently beaten from sallow in autumn, not seen in spring. Not uncommon round Ipswich; Monks Soham garden in very late October 1914; common in Blythburgh Wood (Mly) and Herringfleet (D); Leiston, Frostenden, Beccles. Tuddenham Fen.

Recent Status: Found across Suffolk mainly in woodland or scrub during summer or early autumn.

Life Style: Flies at night and comes to light. Larvae feed from a spun leaf on Salix, Betula, Alnus and Corylus.

Identification: The species is easily recognised by the emarginate costa. A. effractana has a shallower emargination but is yet to be found in Suffolk. The species is variable in colour, the degree of reticulation and the costal mark which sometimes extends over a large portion of the wing or may be absent.
