Species text
In Recorder 2002 the status of Agriphila latistria is given as Notable/Nb in the 1984 provisional review of Microlepidoptera, but this must have been superseded by the national pyralid review by Parsons (1993), which does include the species. It is noted on the coasts of England from Lincolnshire and Lancashire southwards, sandy heaths in the New Forest, also Monmouthshire, Ayrshire, Perthshire and the Isle of Arran. It is local, found on coastal sandhills, dry heaths and occasionally the borders of woodland rides in sandy districts. Goodey (2004) provides gravel pits and coastal as habitat details. Bradley (2000) states that it feeds on grasses, especially brome. References
