04.015 [B&F: 0092] Rose Leaf Miner (Stigmella anomalella) (Goeze, 1783)

 

Notes: Common in hedgerows, parks and gardens throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and locally common, but doubtless under-recorded. Wingspan 5-6.5 mm. Imago has plain bronze forewing, tinged green on the inner two-thirds and red towards the tip (MBGBI Vol 1), but can be separated from similar Stigmella species only by dissection of the genitalia, and more frequently recorded in the larval stage, when mines are relatively easy to find where they are present. Larva mines leaves of Cultivated Rose and Wild Rose, over-wintering as a pupa. Mine very similar to that of S. centifoliella.
