Crassa tinctella
Tinted Tubic

(Hübner, 1796)637 / 28.013
Norfolk status
Scarce, uncertain.
Four pre 1900 records listed (C.G. Barrett).

This species should be recorded in Norfolk, presumably it is being overlooked? Records from Suffolk at Thetford, Brandon and near Lowestoft.

Could be confused with the similar Crassa unitella, but lacks the contrasting orange head and palps of that species. Also similar to Metalampra italica.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.

Recorded in 4 (6%) of 69 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1874.
Last Recorded in 1899.
