Nemophora degeerella

(Linnaeus, 1758)

Wingspan 16-23 mm.

The males of this longhorn moth have extremely long antennae; the females much shorter.

It is quite common over much of England and Wales, more local in Ireland.

In May and June, the males can often be seen in groups, 'dancing' in the sunshine.

The larvae feed on leaf litter on the ground.
