Apotomis sororculana
Narrow-winged Marble

(Zetterstedt, 1839)1095 / 49.152

Morleyís Final Catalogue: Captured at Copdock about 1898 (Hocking).

Recent Status: A rare Breckland species in Suffolk.

Life Style: Single brooded flying at night and coming to light from May to August. The larvae feed from between two spun leaves of Betula. They pupate in the larval habitation that falls to the ground.

Identification: A strongly marked Apotomis with the posterior edge of the dark basal area a little more oblique than A. betuletana making the pale area more extensive. The dark area may also have extensive white markings. The apex is darkened and brownish and there are prominent black spots/dashes centrally close to the termen. These are differently placed to the small black dots that commonly occur in similar Apotomis species. The cilia are dark grey. More Info
