Main: (Lyonetiidae / Cemiostominae)
21.006 [B&F: 0258] Leucoptera lathyrifoliella (Stainton, [1865])


Vulnerable (proposed as a future Red Data Book species) on sea cliffs and undercliffs on the coast of Devon from Torquay to Branscombe. On the Isle of Wight, still found at Luccombe Chine. In Hampshire formerly in Stubby Copse, near Brockenhurst, in the New Forest, but not reported since the 1940s. Wingspan 6-7 mm. Adults easily overlooked, and all records in our area relate to the larval mines on the leaves of Narrow-leaved Everlasting-pea, over-wintering as a pupa.
