The Fan-foot Herminia tarsipennalis

Treitschke, 1835


Wingspan 30-35 mm.

Relatively common over much of the southern part of Britain, becoming less so further north, this species has similarities with some scarcer species but is generally plainer in appearance.

The larvae feed on the withered leaves of a variety of trees and shrubs, and overwinter in this stage.

The flight period is during June and July, when the species comes to light.
