Main: (Coleophoridae / Coleophorinae)
37.085 [B&F: 0569] Coleophora squamosella Stainton, 1856

 

Notes: Vulnerable (proposed as a future Red Data Book species) on waste ground, roadside verges and calcareous grassland in central southern and south-eastern England and the Breckland district of East Anglia (MBGBI Vol 3). In Hampshire known from a few locations, around Chilbolton in the north, where last recorded in 1992, and Hilsea Island in the south, in 1985. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 11-13 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 feeds on seeds of Blue Fleabane, living within a movable case.
