Eudonia pallida (Curtis, 1827)

Wingspan: 17-19mm

Imago: Bivoltine May to September. An occasional visitor to light but only to traps on the Causse. A species of wetland which seems to contradict the appearance of the species on the Causse limestone pavement, a very dry habitat.

Larva: Feeds on moss and lichen.
