04.015 [B&F: 0092] Rose Leaf Miner (Stigmella anomalella) (Goeze, 1783)

 

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.
