422 Argyresthia albistria
(Haworth, 1828)Wingspan 9-12 mm.
A plainer and less metallic-looking species than many others of the genus, this moth has a chestnut-brown forewing, usually with a creamy-white stripe from the head to about a third the length of the wing.
It flies at night in July and August, and is attracted to light.
The larvae feed on blackthorn (Prunus spinosa), overwintering and feeding in the spring.
