Catoptria pinella (Linnaeus, 1758)
Pearl-band Grass Veneer
63.0990 (B&F: 1313)
A widespread resident that generally occurs singly or sparingly at mv light along woodland rides and clearings, although it is somtimes fairly common on heathland and vegetated shingle beaches. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from late June to late August, occasionally to early September. The larval foodplant is unknown in the county but elsewhere includes cottongrass, tufted hair-grass and various other grasses. (Pratt, 2011).
