1469 (Wormwood Knot-horn), Euzophera cinerosella (Zeller, 1839)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Nationally Scarce B

There are records of this species from four Sussex sites. The first was at Kingsham, near Chichester on August 8th, 2000. The second was at Cow Gap, near Eastbourne on July 28th ,2001. Four more examples then turned up at Peacehaven in 2006 (on July 9th, 10th, and 21st and 27th) During the following year two more singletons were caught, this time at Scotney on June 3rd and June 11th, 2007. In other British counties. Larvae feed on the rootstock of wormwood, a common enough plant along the Sussex coast. However all of our captures of cinerosella were made at times of much migrant activity from the continent. (Pratt,2011).
