Main: (Coleophoridae / Coleophorinae)
37.070 [B&F: 0583] Coleophora tamesis Waters, 1929

 

Notes: Local in damp meadows, bogs and woodland rides throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire very infrequent on the south coast, from Southsea in the east to Keyhaven in the west, with one old record from the north of the county. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 11-14 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 Jointed Rush, living within a movable case.
