Main: (Momphidae / Momphinae)
40.007 [B&F: 0889a] Mompha bradleyi Riedl, 1965

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in damp meadows, ditches and marshes in Herefordshire and Worcestershire. In Hampshire recorded for the first time at Fareham on 4 September 2010 and now not infrequent in the Portsmouth area. A healthy population was subsequently discovered in the author's garden in Basingstoke, north Hampshire, where the foodplant is common, so it may be more widespread than currently known. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 9-11 mm. Long confused with and closely resembling M. divisella, but generally smaller, with broader forewing and white dorsal streak at base of forewing more strongly irrorate with grey and brown scales (MBGBI Vol 4 part 1). Larva mines stems of Great Willowherb, forming galls.
