Bryotropha terrella

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

Wingspan 14-16 mm.

A common species, often encountered wherever long grass grows, and easily flushed in the daytime.

The relatively nondescript adults have two indistinct darker dots on the forewing. They fly in June and July.

The larvae feed at the base of grasses, on the stems.
