Main: (Gracillariidae / Lithocolletinae)
15.061 [B&F: 0340] Phyllonorycter scopariella (Zeller, 1846)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) on heathland and in open woodland throughout much of the British Isles, but difficult to locate either as an adult or in the larval stage. In Hampshire found at just a few sites in the north and south, but likely to be far more widely distributed than the records suggest. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 6-8 mm. According to MBGBI Vol 2, it is seldom encountered except as an adult, however the majority of records in Hampshire are in the larval stage. Larva mines twigs of Broom.
