The Shears Hada plebeja

(Linnaeus, 1761)

[Synonyms: nana]
Wingspan 30-35 mm.

Fairly common and widespread throughout a large part of Britain, and frequenting a wide variety of habitats, there is quite a variation in ground colour, with generally paler individuals occurring further south.

It flies from May to July, with a partial second generation in the south.

The larvae feed nocturnally on such low plants as dandelion ( Taraxacum ) and hawk's-beard ( Crepis spp. ).
