Morley’s Final Catalogue: This local species in Norfolk was certain to turn up among the very abundant Sedum telephium in Parham and other woods. Mrs. Mann took it at Bungay in 1903 (Trans, i, 35); and several at light beside Fritton Lake in August 1934-5 (Mly).

Recent Status: A scarce Suffolk species.

Life Style: A double brooded species flying during April, May, July and August. The larvae feed on Sedum telephium and related cultivars. They pupate away from the feeding location.

Identification: A small grey winged species that is devoid of black spots towards the wing tip except for a single prominent one on the termen.
The larvae mine the leaves before feeding externally and gregariously from a slight web. More Info
