Discovered new to Belgium in 2021 in LG.
The species can only be determined on the basis of the genitals. Females are wingless and have no antennae.
It can be confused with Epichnopterix plumella, but the latter is slightly larger.
Larvae can be found from July-August towards following spring. They live in rather block-shaped bags, approx. 6-8 mm, consisting of grass and fine plant parts.
The males fly from April towards early June.
