Uk first Ancylosis convexella.

Britain's first Ancylosis convexella was caught by Tony King in Lyminge, Kent recently (det. D. Shenton). This is a species that occurs in southern Europe and northern Africa.

This continues a string of additions to the British list in the past month, potentially up to the 5th such new species!
