=Metendothenia atropunctana

Morley’s Final Catalogue: Not listed.

Recent Status: Seemingly restricted to a central coastal strip in Suffolk.

Life Style: A single brooded species flying by night and coming to light during May and June. There may be a partial second brood flying in August. The larvae feed from leaves rolled into a pod on Betula and Salix. They pupate in a cocoon on the ground.

Identification: This is the smallest Hedya species. The moths forewings are tinted pink to a varying degree, which becomes most evident on the paler parts. The edge of the dark part of the wing shows a single central dot within the pale section. It may be discrete or joined. More Info
