Annual Report 2020 - Page: 1

Introduction

Micropterigidae to Bucculatricidae

Gracillariidae to Lypusidae
For species seen in 2020 that had less than or equal to 100 records, full details are included; for more common species, the earliest, latest and highest count by vice-county are shown. The narrative for each species is taken from the main Hantsmoths website, and it is possible that some information on abundance and occurrence can get out of date, as it is impossible to keep up with all changes; however it should give a good introduction to each species.
The tables in each species account summarise the previous status, and that for the current year.
For the maps, all records prior to 2020 are shown by a blue dot (the larger the dot, the more recent), with the current year's records shown in red. As previous records are superimposed on any report for 2020, new sites have greater emphasis (i.e. will show as 'more red').
In the species accounts, an asterisk next to a location indicates a new 10km square record; earliest ever dates are highlighted in orange, and latest ever in red. Initials in the species accounts refer to the recorders listed here.
Please get in touch if you identify any omissions or errors, in particular if you have records that have yet to be submitted. Details of how to submit records can be found here.

Micropterigidae

Micropteriginae

01.001 0001 Micropterix tunbergella (Fabricius, 1787) - Local
Local in woodland throughout England and Wales as far north as the Lake District and Northumberland. Uncommon in Hampshire, where absent from the south-west and north-east, and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 8-11 mm. Adults have purple markings on a metallic golden ground and orange head tufts. The larval food is apparently unknown, various alternatives have been suggested, including the pollen of oak, sycamore and other plants, minute particles of leaf litter, and fungal hyphae; larvae have been found up to 10cm deep in stony woodland soil.

02.002 0007 Paracrania chrysolepidella (Zeller, 1851) - Local
Local in woodland, hedgerows and scrub in southern England and also the Burren in Ireland. In Hampshire very local in deciduous woodland, particularly from Botley Wood in the 1970s, but there have been no mainland records for over a decade. A first record from the Isle of Wight in 2020 was therefore a surprise. Wingspan 9-13 mm. Very similar to E. cicatricella from which separated only by dissection of the genitalia. Larva mines leaves of Hornbeam and Hazel, over-wintering as a pupa.

03.003 0018 Map-winged Swift Korscheltellus fusconebulosa (De Geer, 1778) - Local
Local on moorland and heathland, and in open woodland and rough pastures throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire very local amongst Bracken, with strongholds in Crab Wood in vice-county 11 and Pamber Forest in vice-county 12; ). On the Isle of Wight, one on Luccombe Down in 2015 was the first record since the start of the 20th century.

Wingspan 32-50 mm. Distinguished from its congeners by the conspicuously barred cilia of fore- and hindwing (MBGBI Vol 1). Larva feeds within roots of Bracken, over-wintering twice, also found in areas where Bracken does not occur, where the foodplant may be Red Fescue.

Common throughout much of Britain and western Ireland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight well-distributed and common. Wingspan 3.5-4.8 mm. The species appears to be partly or wholly parthenogenetic. Adults difficult to distinguish from other Stigmella species, and more frequently recorded in the larval stage, when mines are relatively easy to find where they are present. Larva mines leaves of Hazel and Hornbeam, over-wintering as a pupa. The mines are described in the following link:

04.012 0102 Stigmella aceris (Frey, 1857) - Local
Local in woodland, gardens and parkland from Kent to Hampshire. First recorded in our area from Teg Down, Winchester, in 1986, it was not found again until 2004 in the Fleet area, where the centre of population still lies. Perhaps under-recorded elsewhere, but the paucity of records from south Hampshire suggest it is genuinely rare elsewhere, and first recorded from the Isle of Wight in 2020. Wingspan 3.7-4.7 mm. Best recorded in the larval stage, when mines can be found in the leaves of Field Maple, sometimes Norway Maple, over-wintering as a pupa. The mines are described in the following link:

04.015 0092 Rose Leaf Miner Stigmella anomalella (Goeze, 1783) - Common
Common in hedgerows, parks and gardens throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight widespread and locally common, but doubtless under-recorded. Wingspan 5-6.5 mm. Imago has plain bronze forewing, tinged green on the inner two-thirds and red towards the tip (MBGBI Vol 1), but can be separated from similar Stigmella species only by dissection of the genitalia. Most frequently recorded as a larval miner of the leaves of Cultivated Rose and Wild Rose, over-wintering as a pupa. However, the mine very similar to that of S. centifoliella and records of vacated mines, although reported here, should be treated with caution.

04.059 0087 Stigmella svenssoni (Johansson, 1971) - Local
Local in woodland throughout much of the British Isles, although distribution poorly known owing to previous confusion with S. ruficapitella. First recorded in Hampshire in 1983 at Botley Wood, since when found to be sparsely distributed across much of south Hampshire, but remains very rare in north Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 6-7 mm. Very similar to S. ruficapitella and S. roborella, from which separable only by dissection of the genitalia; more frequently recorded in the larval stage, when mines can be reasonably common in the leaves of Pedunculate Oak.

04.062 0088 Stigmella samiatella (Zeller, 1839) - Local
Local in woodland and gardens; the stronghold of the species nationally is in Hampshire, with records from south-east England and East Anglia and only scattered occurrences in the Midlands. The first county record, at Wickham in 1986, was originally thought to be S. atricapitella until bred through; turned up on the Isle of Wight in 1997 and in north Hampshire at Yateley in 2000. Wingspan 5-7 mm. Imago closely resembles S. atricapitella, but frons generally yellow in samiatella. Larva mines leaves of Sweet Chestnut and Oak, over-wintering as a pupa. Mines on Oak are difficult to separate from those of S. svenssoni without breeding through. The mines are described in the following link:

04.063 0086 Stigmella roborella (Johansson, 1971) - Common
Common in woodland, gardens and parkland throughout the British Isles. Reasonably common and widely distributed across Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 5-6.5 mm. Though this species tends to be smaller than S. svenssoni and has more unicolorous forewings and less glossy hindwings than females of S. ruficapitella, the three species, all of which exclusively mine leaves of Oak, cannot be determined with certainty without dissection of the genitalia (MBGBI Vol 1). Larva mines leaves of Oak, over-wintering as a pupa.

04.075 0022 Etainia louisella (Sircom, 1849) - Local
Local in woodland, gardens, orchards and parks in south-eastern England, from Kent to Cambridgeshire and Somerset. Distribution in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight poorly known owing to confusion with E. sericopeza, but recorded for the first time in vice-county 12 only in 1996. Wingspan 5-8 mm. Very similar to E. sericopeza, which see for differences. Larva mines samara of Field Maple.
The specimen illustrated here is assumed to be this species (over 0021 E. sericopeza). The latter mines Norway Maple, with the present species on the more common Field Maple; outwardly, the two species are very similar, and historically there has been great confusion between the two.

04.082 0025 Ectoedemia intimella (Zeller, 1848) - Local
Local in damp woodland and marshes throughout England, less commonly in the north. In Hampshire mainly recorded in the larval stage, as a leaf mine on Sallow, but uncommon in north Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan male 5.3-6.3 mm, female 5.6-6.8 mm. Easily separated from most Ectoedemia species by presence of a medial dorsal spot only on forewing. Distinguished from E. heringella by more uniformly dark forewings, hair-pencil in male, and the flagellum being the same colour as the scape: it is the only Ectoedemia with this character. Other species of Nepticulidae with dorsal spot only have it in postmedial position (MBGBI Vol 1). Larva mines leaves of Sallow, over-wintering as a pupa.

04.085 0023 Ectoedemia argyropeza (Zeller, 1839) - Local
Local in woodland throughout Britain, south of Fife. In Hampshire probably under-recorded, with known records concentrated in those areas in which leaf-mining expertise is concentrated. On the Isle of Wight recorded for the first time in 1984 at Freshwater, but not since. A parthenogenetic species, of which males are unknown, larvae can be bred from single females; wingspan of female 5.0-6.8 mm. The imago is very similar to E. turbidella, but the head is more orange, the white scaling on the forewings is generally limited to the fascia or opposite spots, and the wings are shorter (MBGBI Vol 1). Adults difficult to distinguish from other Eriocrania species, and more frequently recorded in the larval stage, when mines are relatively easy to find where they are present. Larva mines leaves of Aspen, over-wintering as a pupa.

04.089 0037 Ectoedemia albifasciella (Heinemann, 1871) - Common
Common in woodland, gardens, orchards and parks throughout much of England and Wales and, in favourable years, southern Scotland. Widely distributed and fairly common in Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan male 5.2-6.4 mm, female 5.2-6.5 mm. The imago may be distinguished from E. subbimaculella and E. heringi by the absence of the large and conspicuous white spot at the base of the forewing. Adults difficult to distinguish from other Ectoedemia species, and more frequently recorded in the larval stage, when mines are relatively easy to find where they are present.

In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight the mines often abundant on Pedunculate Oak, but has been confused in the past with E. albifasciella and E. heringi, and the true extent of its distribution may be much wider. Wingspan 4.8-6.1 mm. Imago distinguished from most other Ectoedemia species by the white basal spot on the forewing (MBGBI Vol 1). Adults difficult to distinguish from other Ectoedemia species, and more frequently recorded in the larval stage, when mines are relatively easy to find where they are present.

04.091 0039 Ectoedemia heringi (Toll, 1934) - Local
Local in woodland, orchards, gardens and parks throughout south-eastern England, north to Lincolnshire, and in central Wales. 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. Wingspan 4.2-5.3 mm. More likely to be recorded in the larval stage; the imago closely resembles E. subbimaculella but has the crown of the head darker, the spot at the base of the forewing larger, all the spots and the cilia whiter and the hindwings paler, nevertheless it is difficult to differentiate the two species with certainty without examination of the genitalia (MBGBI Vol 1).

Imago separated from most Ectoedemia species by completely jet-black colour of thorax and forewings (except fascia, but including cilia) and from Stigmella species by collar, which consists of hair-scales (lamellar scales in Stigmella), and separated from the very similar E. minimella by presence of group of white scales on underside of forewing in male, and by light coloured head in female. Adults difficult to distinguish from other Ectoedemia species, and more frequently recorded in the larval stage, when mines are relatively easy to find where they are present. Larva mines leaves of Silver Birch and Downy Birch, over-wintering as a pupa.

04.100 0035 Ectoedemia minimella (Zetterstedt, 1839) - Common
Common in England and Wales, mainly in the south and west, and in Scotland, in the north and east; in Ireland, it has been recorded from Co. Galway and the south-western counties. 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. Wingspan male 5.1-6.1 mm, female 5.1-6.6 mm. Imago is very similar to E. occultella, but differs in its smaller size, broader and more silvery fascia, seldom extended inwards along the margins, and more silvery cilia (MBGBI Vol 1). Adults difficult to distinguish from other Ectoedemia species, and more frequently recorded in the larval stage, when mines are relatively easy to find where they are present. Larva mines leaves of Silver Birch, Downy Birch and Hazel, over-wintering as a pupa.

VC12: Hangers way*, mine, five, on Cornus sanguinea, 31 Jul (MHals)

06.002 0159 Antispila petryi Martini, 1899 - Local
Local in woodland, and on downland and scrubland throughout southern England, north to Yorkshire. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight not uncommon where the foodplant grows, recorded mostly as vacated mines and leaf cut-outs. Wingspan 6 mm. May be separated from the other Cornus feeding Antispila A. metallella by its smaller size, darker and less coppery ground colour, the shape of the pre-apical spot, the colour pattern of the terminal cilia and the paler and less purple hindwings (MBGBI Vol 1). Larva mines leaves of Dogwood, subsequently living within a movable case, and over-wintering as a pupa. The mines are described in the following link:
leafmines.co.uk
.

Van Nieukerken et al (Nota Lepidopterologica 41, 2018) documented that the Cornus feeding Antispila species was in fact A. petryi (not previously on the British List) and not A. treitschkiella as previously assigned; therefore all historic records of A. treitschkiella have now been reassigned to petryi. True Antispila treitschkiella has only been found in the UK in London (2016). It feeds on Cornelian Cherry (Cornus mas) and has two generations a year.

The forewing costal spot is usually triangular in treitschkiella, whereas it is trapezoid in petryi, but the two are best distinguished by male genitalia, larva and hostplant.

Leaf-mines can be found in August to October, the larva eating out a short gallery leading to a blotch, then cutting an oval case.

08.002 0130 Incurvaria masculella ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) - Common
Common on woodland edges, hedgerows, scrubland and gardens throughout the British Isles. Widespread and common in both Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 12-16 mm. Female could be confused with I. oehlmanniella but yellow marking on costa (if present) is closer to head than adjacent tornal spot, also has relatively narrow scales on the hindwing (MBGBI Vol 1). Larva mines leaves of Hawthorn, living within a movable case, subsequently feeding in the fallen leaves.

08.005 0128 Phylloporia bistrigella (Haworth, 1828) - Local
Local in scrub and heathland throughout much of Britain and Ireland. In Hampshire there are scattered records in the south and north-east of the county, notably at Botley Wood and at Fleet, but generally uncommon in the north of the county and on the Isle of Wight, although perhaps under-recorded since the extent of known records correlate with those areas in which the recording effort is concentrated. Wingspan 7-9 mm. Imago can be separated from other similar Incurvariidae by its small size, but often recorded in the larval stage, the mines of which are distinctive. Larva mines leaves of Birch, living within a movable case, subsequently feeding in the fallen leaves. The mines are described in the following link:

11.007 0182 Bankesia conspurcatella (Zeller, 1850) - pRDB1
Endangered (proposed as a future Red Data Book species) in Hampshire and Kent, where it was rediscovered in 1984, and Yorkshire; recently also found in an urban context in Mynachdy, Cardiff. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. There has been some discussion amongst authors as to the identity of the species found in Britain; formerly it was believed to be Dahlica (Bankesia) douglasii, but presently it is assigned to B. conspurcatella. The adult moths are seen occasionally, but most records are of larval cases. Larva feeds on lichens growing on tree trunks, fence posts and rocks, living within a movable case, over-wintering as a pupa.

Similar to other species of this group especially Cork Moth N. cloacella, but the ground colour is so dark that the markings corresponding to those of the other species are scarcely visible. Larva feeds on fungi and dead wood, often on Birch.

12.019 0219 Nemapogon ruricolella (Stainton, 1849) - Nationally Scarce B
Nationally scarce (Nb) in woodland, heathland and commons throughout southern England. In Hampshire continues to be recorded at low densities in most years, but until rediscovered in Parkhurst Forest in 2020, there was only a single vague record from Wight, dated 1934, referenced in Goater, 1974. Wingspan 10-14 mm. Resembles the much more common Cork Moth N. cloacella most closely, but is usually recognisable by the pale reddish brown subapical area, less mottled than in Cork Moth, in which the whitish postmedian spot stands out distinctly, this spot being not as clearly rounded as in Cork Moth (MBGBI Vol 2). Larva feeds on various bracket fungi, including Razorstrop Fungus, a widespread resident on birch trees.

Tineinae

12.026 0236 Common Clothes Moth Tineola bisselliella (Hummel, 1823) - Local
Local in houses and farm buildings throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight formerly the most abundant clothes moth, but now outnumbered by Case-bearing Clothes Moth Tinea pellionella. Wingspan 9-16 mm. Characterised by reddish ochreous head and pale buff, unmarked forewings. Larva feeds on woollen materials, animal fur, feathers in bird nests and insect collections, living within a silken tube or tent, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas.

Local in houses, bird nests, barns, warehouses and granaries throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight sparsely distributed but widespread. Wingspan 9-16 mm. Probably the commonest tineid clothes moth, but cannot always be reliably separated from T. translucens or T. dubiella without dissection of the genitalia. Larva feeds on woollen materials, fur, feathers, hair, owl pellets and stored goods, living within a silken case, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas.

12.032 0246 Tinea semifulvella Haworth, 1828 - Common
Common in bird nests throughout much of Britain and Ireland. In Hampshire recorded widely throughout, and on the Isle of Wight, after being historically rare, increased recording activity in the 21st century has revealed its true status as being equally widespread. Systematic collection of old bird-nests during the winter months would likely result in many more records of this and other related species. Wingspan 14-22 mm. Resembles T. trinotella, which see for differences. Larva feeds on detritus in bird nests and sheep's wool.

12.036 0227 Skin Moth Monopis laevigella ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) - Common
Common in and around bird nests and farm buildings throughout the British Isles and on sea cliffs on St Kilda. In Hampshire probably common but under-recorded throughout, and increased recording activity on the Isle of Wight in recent years has revealed it to be widespread. Wingspan 13-20 mm. Similar to M. obviella, but lateral dark margin of head wider (MBGBI Vol 2). Larva feeds on dead animals, animal waste, owl pellets, detritus in bird nests and bird guano, living within a silken tube or tent.
