|With opened wings|
(Duponchel, in Godart, 1842) 
The wingspan is 15–20 mm. Forewings show a subquadrate large whitish dorsal blotch and a light brown colouration. These moths are very similar to Epiblema scutulana and Epiblema cirsiana, but they are generally browner and lighter.
The larvae feed on coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara), winter heliotrope (Petasites fragrans), greater burdock (Arctium lappa), marsh thistle (Cirsium palustre), musk thistle (Carduus nutans) and spear thistle (Cirsium vulgare). They initially feed in the roots, but later in the flower lower stems. Adults are on wing from May to June.
