Main: (Gracillariidae / Phyllocnistinae)
15.092 [B&F: 0368] Phyllocnistis unipunctella (Stephens, 1834)

 

Notes: Common in woodland, areas with scattered trees and gardens throughout much of southern England and southern Wales, with records north to Cheshire. Probably under-recorded in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight, where the extent of known records correlate with those areas in which the recording effort is concentrated. Wingspan 7-8 mm. Comes readily to light, the second generation often overwinters in thatch or hayricks (MBGBI Vol 2). Larva mines leaves of Black Poplar and Lombardy Poplar.
