Morley’s Final Catalogue: Not listed.

Recent Status: A single record for Suffolk. This species is thought to be on the increase in Britain, occurring in deciduous woodland with an abundance of Lonicera.

Life Style: A single brooded species that flies by day and occasionally comes to light. Flying during May and April. The larvae feed from a rolled leaf on Lonicera periclymenum, L. caprifolium and L. xylosteum. They hibernate in a cocoon in the larval habitation or on the ground in which they pupate.

Identification: A small but very attractively marked species. The apical third, including a black streaked ocellus, is a bright yellowish brown and delimited basally by a metallic fascia. The posterior edge of the ocellus and other strigulae in the apical third are metallic. There are four white costal strigulae. The basal two thirds of the wing is a bright reddish brown with plumbeous fasciae. The wing base and side of thorax may be paler. More Info
