Main: (Elachistidae / Elachistinae)
38.036 [B&F: 0606] Elachista humilis Zeller, 1850

 

Notes: Common in a wide range of habitats throughout much of Britain, but not in the Highlands or Islands of Scotland; rare in Ireland. In Hampshire reasonably well-distributed in the south of the county, but very infrequent in the north and on the Isle of Wight; probably under-recorded. Wingspan 9-10 mm. The male is extremely similar to the small, poorly-marked upland form of E. alpinella from which it can often reliably be separated only by dissection of the genitalia (MBGBI Vol 3). Larva mines leaves of various grasses.
