Crambidae

1293 Garden Grass-veneer, Chrysoteuchia culmella (Linnaeus, 1758)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Common

A very variable resident species that is widespread and probably generally distributed in large areas, but local in high numbers. It is often very common to mv light, and occasionally abundant in wild grassy areas. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from early June to the third week of August, occasionally to the second week of September. Autumnal sightings may be due to a partial overlapping second emergence. The larvae feed on unspecified grasses. (Pratt, 2011).
