02.002 [B&F: 0007] Paracrania chrysolepidella (Zeller, 1851)

 

Local in woodland, hedgerows and scrub in a few counties in southern England and on the Burren in Ireland. In Hampshire very local amongst Hazel, formerly numerous in Botley Wood but not recorded there since the mid 1970s, and now known regularly only from Wickham Common and Crab Wood, Sparsholt. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. 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.
