Carpatolechia proximella Hübner, 1796
A recent addition to the Outer Hebrides moth list. This species may have benefitted from increased tree planting, especially of Birches Betula species, although it can also be found on Alder Alnus glutinosa. The four records since the first in 2015 have been in June-July.
