Main: (Nepticulidae / Nepticulinae)
04.058 [B&F: 0089] Stigmella basiguttella (Heinemann, 1862)

 

Notes: Common in woodland, gardens, orchards and parks throughout much of south-eastern England, with records north to Yorkshire. Widely distributed, but not particularly common, in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 4.5-6 mm. The pale spot at the base of the forewing generally serves to distinguish this species, but it is liable to be mistaken for S. atricapitella if the spot is obscure; in such cases the yellow frons is diagnostic (MBGBI Vol 1). Larva mines leaves of Oak, over-wintering as a pupa.
