Diplodoma laichartingella
Dotted-margin Bagworm

(Goeze, 1783)180 / 11.001
=Diplodoma herminata
Norfolk status

New for Norfolk 2015. Found on a wall in the toilets at Natural Surroundings, Bayfield on 30th June 2015 by Ann Duff. Male gen. det. by J. Clifton.

Recent (2018) records from west Norfolk and just over the border in Thetford.

Local throughout Britain, in wooded areas. Both sexes are fully winged, unlike most of the Psychidae. The larva builds a case covered with pieces of plant material, and feeds on lichens and decaying vegetable matter on old stumps, fences and rocks.
Adults of all Psychidae cannot feed and are short-lived, the males living from a few hours to rarely more than a day, but females may live for up to two weeks. Males may fly by day, often in sunshine. Neither sex are attracted to lights.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.

Recorded in 8 (12%) of 69 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 2015.
Last Recorded in 2019.
