Main: (Nepticulidae / Nepticulinae)
04.036 [B&F: 0072] Stigmella myrtillella (Stainton, 1857)

 

Notes: Local in woodland, heathland and moorland throughout much of Britain, favouring high ground. Not recorded in recent years from Hampshire, although there are old records for Burley and Beaulieu in the south of the county and Woolmer Forest in the north. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 5.4-6.3 mm. Adults difficult to distinguish from other Stigmella species, and more frequently recorded in the larval stage, when mines are relatively easy to find where they are present. Larva mines leaves of Bilberry and Bog Bilberry, over-wintering as a pupa.
