Acleris sponsana (Fabricius, 1787)
Acleris favillaceana (Hübner, )
Resident. Occurs sparingly at light in both vice-counties, but is occasionally fairly common in a few place in the west. Widespread and increasing. Single-brooded flying mainly from early September to early December, and then during an intermittent hibernation up to late January. If any adult is thought to be A.sparsana outside this flight time is in fact referable to a different species. Larvae feed on beech, hornbeam, sycamore and maple. (Pratt, 2011).
