0557 Coleophora gardesanella Toll, 1953 - (Coleophoridae / Coleophorinae)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Na) in a wide variety of habitats, including saltmarshes, damp meadows, marshes, river-banks, dry grassland, downland, waste ground and roadside verges, in the south-eastern counties of England, from Hampshire to Essex, but may prove to be more widespread. In Hampshire first recorded in 1977, from Botley Wood, and since found in several localities in southern Hampshire and a few in the north. not recorded on the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 9.5-11 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 mines leaves of Sea Wormwood, Mugwort, Sneezewort, Yarrow, Tansy and Ox-eye Daisy, living within a movable case.
