Acrobasis advenella

(Zincken, 1818)1439 / 62.035
=Trachycera advenella

Davey, P., 2009: A locally common species in England, Wales and southern Scotland, the larva feeding on hawthorn (Crataegus spp.) and rowan (Sorbus aucuparia). In Dorset, the moth is widespread and at low density, but common locally on clay and chalky soils where mature hawthorn grows. The moth has also been recorded from a number of coastal localities where blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) forms thickets, and this may provide an alternative foodsource in these localities.
