Anacampsis populella (Clerck, 1759)
Status .....Appears to be scarce and restricted to a handful of sites. This moth should be more common, but some ID difficulties can lead to under-recording. It can perhaps be more easily recorded in the larval stage though, as the rolled-up leaves of Poplars and Aspen are conspicuous.
