This little beastie is Duponchelia fovealis (1403a). It is an immigrant species originating from the Mediterranean region and 1st appeared in Britain in 1996. Usually coastal, it has taken 14 years to finally end up in our back yard and is the 5th new species of Micro Moth to be recorded this year!
