of the Lepidoptera of Belgium

Aristotelia ericinella (Zeller, 1839)

Rather common all over Belgium, but restricted to heathland habitats.

The larva lives in a silken tube amongst the shoots of Calluna.

The adults fly in July and August. They come to light.

Belgium, Luxembourg, Nassogne, 22 July 2004.
