    Buff Birch Case-bearer

    This birch-feeder has six Somerset records from four sites to date, relatively recent ones from Haddon Hill, Rexton Gorse and Shapwick, and one long ago from Leigh Woods.  There seems no good reason it should not still occur on Exmoor, the Quantocks and the Shapwick area.
