Ancylosis oblitella

(Zeller, 1848)


Wingspan 18-22 mm.

Formerly known only as a scarce migrant, this species colonised the south-east of England in the late 1950s and subsequently became established, spreading inland and northwards to the Midlands.

The moths fly in two generations; in May and then again in July and August, and can be attracted to light.

The larval foodplant is goosefoot (Chenopodium spp.)
