Metzneria neuropterella

Metzneria neuropterella

The last Kent records were in 1965. In 2011 the species was discovered by James Hunter on the downs near Shoreham and confirmed from photos by John Langmaid. It was also trapped on 3 occasions at the same site this year with up to 5 individuals being caught.
