Main: (Elachistidae / Elachistinae)
38.001 [B&F: 0590] Perittia obscurepunctella (Stainton, 1848)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in open woodland throughout much of England, more numerous in the south. Probably under-recorded in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight, where the extent of known records correlate with those areas in which the recording effort is concentrated, but probably rather uncommon in the north of the county. Wingspan 8-10 mm. An obscurely marked species best confirmed by examination of the genitalia which are distinctive in both sexes (MBGBI Vol 3). Larva mines leaves of Honeysuckle, over-wintering as a pupa.
