Main: (Bucculatricidae / Bucculatricinae)
14.012 [B&F: 0275] Bucculatrix bechsteinella (Bechstein & Scharfenberg, 1805)

 

Notes: Local in scrub, hedgerows and woodland edges throughout much of England and southern Scotland. Widespread in Hampshire, although apparently absent from the New Forest in recent years, and only known from a handful of sites on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 7-9 mm. Flies in evening sunshine. One of the less distinctive Bucculatrix species, and probably under-recorded. Larva mines leaves of Hawthorn, Pear, Apple, Rowan and Wild Service-tree, over-wintering as a pupa.
