Syncopacma vinella (Bankes, 1898)
The larva spins a number of leaflets together. Within this protection it bites a hole in the epidermis of the basal part of a leaflet, then mines it out almost completely.
Also Securigera varia is mentioned, very probably in error. Dyer’s Greenwood probably is the main hostplant.
Larvae have been found in April – June and October – November (Bland, Heckford & Langmaid, 2002a).
BE recored (Wullaert (2015a).
NE Last record in 1939 (Noctua, 2009).
LUX not recorded (Fauna Europaea, 2009).
