Main: (Coleophoridae / Coleophorinae)
37.086 [B&F: 0568] Coleophora versurella Zeller, 1849

 

Notes: Local on saltmarshes, waste ground and farmland in England and Wales, as far north as Co. Durham, and the Isle of Man (MBGBI Vol 3). In Hampshire largely restricted to the south-east coast, while the few inland records include one at Sherborne St John in 2007, the first in northern Hampshire for some years. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1938. Wingspan 11-15 mm. Imago very similar to C. sternipennella, from which only reliably separated by dissection of the genitalia. Larva feeds on seeds of Orache and Goosefoot, living within a movable case. Case indistinguishable from those of href="0565.php">C. saxicolella, C. sternipennella and C. vestianella.
