Main: (Coleophoridae / Coleophorinae)
37.100 [B&F: 0525] Coleophora solitariella Zeller, 1849


Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in hedgerows and open woodland in southern England, as far north as Lincolnshire, and eastern Wales (MBGBI Vol 3). In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight recorded only a handful of times, mainly in the south of the county, with a single record from the Island. Wingspan 10-12 mm. Like many of the Coleophora, imagines are virtually impossible to identify without recourse to dissection, and the larvae, which live in cases of characteristic form and which can sometimes be found on the foodplant, may be easier to identify by comparison against a reference collection. Larva mines leaves of Greater Stitchwort, living within a movable case.
