Common

Resident. Often fairly common to common at mv light, and very common at dusk, in a wide range of habitats in both vice-counties. Probably generally distributed, it is the most numerous of the Olethreutinae and is also one of the most plentiful micro-moths in the county. Double-brooded, flying in overlapping flights which appear mainly from the second week of May to late August, and again from mid August to mid October, although adults have been seen in every week from early May to late October. Larvae feed in the young shoots of almost any shrubs and plants, including Epilobium and Hypericum species. (Pratt, 2011).
