(Schläger, 1847)1064 / 49.162

Morley’s Final Catalogue: Certainly quite a rare species with us. Found only by Gibbs in Bentley Woods during 1901, among Taraxacum, no rare plant!

Recent Status: Distributed across Suffolk and particularly common at the coast.

Life Style: A single brooded summer flying species that comes to light. The larvae feed from a silken tube on the roots of Sonchus arvensis, S. asper and Taraxacum. They pupate in a cocoon in the ground.

Identification: This species is similar to C. rufana. C. rosaceana has an overall pink colour including the cilia. The colouring is generally darker towards the head with a brown or grey colour. The wing markings are even across the wing. C. rufana markings show some coalescence resulting in short fasciae particularly from the dorsum. More Info
