Main: (Coleophoridae / Coleophorinae)
37.039 [B&F: 0523] Coleophora hemerobiella (Scopoli, 1763)

 

Notes: Local in hedgerows, gardens and orchards throughout much of south-eastern England. First recorded in Hampshire in Shroner Wood, north Hampshire, in 1965, but then not seen again until 2003, when increasingly found in suitable habitat in the north-east of the county. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 12-15 mm. The forewings are pale grey and the stigma is normally clearly visible; the species is usually quite unmistakable. Larva mines leaves of Hawthorn, Apple, Wild Cherry, Rowan, Pear, Plum and Whitebeam, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas, living within a movable case, and over-wintering twice; case length 8-11 mm.
