Limnaecia phragmitella

Stainton, 1851


Wingspan 22 mm.

Occupying fens and marshes, this species is fairly generally distributed over a large part of the British Isles.

The larvae feed inside the seedheads of bulrush ( Typha spp.) throughout the winter. They can often be detected by the presence of quantities of protruding down.

The adults fly in July from dusk into the night.
