04.049 [B&F: 0055] Stigmella aeneofasciella (Herrich-Schäffer, 1855)

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in dry pastures throughout much of southern England and from Lancashire northwards to Cumberland and Durham. In Hampshire most frequently found in the south-east of the county and perhaps under-recorded elsewhere. Recorded on the Isle of Wight at Shanklin in 1973, but not since. Wingspan 4.5-5.5 mm. 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 Agrimony, Tormentil, Cinquefoil and Wild Strawberry, over-wintering as a pupa.
