Main: (Elachistidae / Elachistinae)
38.032 [B&F: 0602] Elachista apicipunctella Stainton, 1849

 

Notes: Local along woodland edges and in woodland clearings throughout much of the British Isles, except for the extreme south-west of England. In Hampshire there is a single old record from "Southampton" in 1937, but the precise place where the specimen was taken is uncertain (MBGBI Vol 3). No more was heard of the species in the county until May 2002, when one was found in a Rothamsted trap at West Park. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 10-11 mm. Similar to E. albifrontella, but the extra subapical spot beyond the costal and tornal spots of the forewing on E. apicipunctella is diagnostic. Larva mines leaves of various grasses.
