Main: (Nepticulidae / Nepticulinae)
04.026 [B&F: 0100] Stigmella oxyacanthella (Stainton, 1854)

 

Notes: Common throughout much of Britain, but not in northern Scotland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight well-distributed and reasonably common throughout. Wingspan 4-5.2 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, but much confused in the past with S. crataegella, which has a similar mine and larva. Larva mines leaves of Hawthorn, Apple and Pear, over-wintering as a pupa. The mines are described in the following link:
