Yponomeutidae

435 (Brown Ash Ermel), Zelleria hepariella Stainton, 1849

Status and ecology:

National Status: Local

An unusual resident that re-appeared in the county in 2005 after an absence of over a hundred years. It occurs singly at mv light in a very few deciduous woods in West Sussex and is rare in most of East Sussex. It is single-brooded, flying mainly from mid July to late October and again after hibernation during the following spring. The larvae feed on ash but this still needs confirmation in this county. (Pratt, 2011).
