Main: (Coleophoridae / Coleophorinae)
37.003 [B&F: 0488] Coleophora limoniella (Stainton, 1884)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in saltmarshes throughout much of south-eastern England, with records north to Lincolnshire. Common in the salt-marshes of the Isle of Wight and southern Hampshire. Wingspan 10-11 mm. Imago fairly distinctive with its silver metallic markings; it comes readily to light and may be netted at dusk over its foodplant. Larva feeds within flowers and seedheads of Common Sea-lavender, living within a movable case, which can be quite easy to find amongst the foodplant.
