15.069 [B&F: 0347] Phyllonorycter anderidae (Fletcher, 1885)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) on heathland, moorland and mosses in southern and south-eastern counties of England, a number of north Welsh and adjacent English counties to Cumbria, and from west Perthshire (MBGBI Vol 2). In Hampshire known from about a dozen sites in the south, including Emer Bog, Havant Thicket, Roydon Woods and Wickham Common less widespread in the north, where known from Bramshott Common Eelmoor Marsh, Pamber Forest and Yateley Heath Wood. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 5-6.5 mm. Imago seldom encountered, and more likely to be recorded in the larval stage, but mines are small and not particularly easy to find. Larva mines leaves of Birch, with a preference shown for seedling plants growing in open areas such as beside paths or in clearings, tending to disappear from localities when the habitat becomes unsuitable, over-wintering as a pupa in a cocoon.
