Sclerocona acutellus

Sclerocona acutellus

Observation - Sclerocona acutellus - UK and Ireland. Description: This moth is an occasional in the UK, and thought to come from reed imported for thatching. The house just down the road was being re-thatched with reed over the summer, so seems the likely source. This is only about the third Dorset record.
