04.022 [B&F: 0107] Stigmella regiella (Herrich-Schäffer, 1855)

 

Notes: Local in hedgerows, scrub and gardens throughout much of England and Wales. Fairly widely distributed in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight, and undoubtedly under-recorded. Wingspan 4.5-5 mm. Like many Stigmella species, usually identified by its characteristic leaf mine, a narrow gallery filled with reddish frass following the leaf-margin and then expanding abruptly into a blotch with the frass, now blackish, deposited irregularly in the centre (MBGBI Vol 1), and very infrequently recorded as an adult, in which stage identifiable only by dissection of the genitalia. Larva mines leaves of Hawthorn, over-wintering as a pupa.
