04.011 [B&F: 0109] Stigmella prunetorum (Stainton, 1855)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in woodland, downland and clifftops along the south coast and in the west. On the Isle of Wight, a few recent records from the north of the Island. In Hampshire there have been no acceptable records since 1900. Wingspan 4.3-4.7 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 Blackthorn, Wild Cherry and Dwarf Cherry, over-wintering as a pupa. The mines are described in the following link:
