Epiblema foenella (Linnaeus, 1758)
49.2880 (B&F: 1183)
A resident, increasing species that generally occurs singly by day and at mv light in a few places across the county, although it is occasionally more numerous at Rye Harbour. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late August, sometimes from mid June or to mid September. The species has long been associated with mugwort in Sussex, the roots and lower stems of which are its known larval food in other counties. (Pratt, 2011).
