15.037 [B&F: 0318] Phyllonorycter tenerella (Joannis, 1915)

 

Notes: Local in woodland throughout much of south-eastern England, found elsewhere as an introduction in Hornbeam plantations. In Hampshire apart from one old record from Alice Holt in 1963, recorded only since 1998, mostly by Rob Edmunds around Fleet, but also near Bentley and Odiham in north Hampshire and at Lower Test Marsh in south Hampshire. Recorded on the Isle of Wight for the first time at Osborne in 2010. Wingspan 6-8 mm. Imago may come to light, but more frequently recorded in the larval stage, when mines are relatively easy to find where they are present. Larva mines leaves of Hornbeam, over-wintering as a pupa in a cocoon.
