Main: (Coleophoridae / Coleophorinae)
37.041 [B&F: 0546] Coleophora genistae Stainton, 1857

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Na) in rough grassland, damp heathland, mosses and moorland in England northwards to Loch Ness, Scotland; rare in North Wales (MBGBI Vol 3). In Hampshire virtually restricted to the New Forest and, in the north of the county, Bartley Heath. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1969. Wingspan 11-13 mm. Very similar to C. saturatella. 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 Petty Whin, living within a movable case, often several together.
