37.040 [B&F: 0524] Coleophora lithargyrinella Zeller, 1849

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in open woodland, hedgerows, cliffs and shingle beaches in parts of the British Isles, one of the more widespread coleophorids in Britain. In Hampshire first recorded on Odiham Common in 1963, and almost annual there since, also reported from Hurstbourne Common and Fleet in recent years, but not recorded in southern Hampshire or on the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 11-13.5 mm. Very similar to C. solitariella. Like many of the Coleophora, imagines are virtually impossible to identify without recourse to dissection, and the larvae, which live in cases of characteristic form and which can sometimes be found on the foodplant, may be easier to identify by comparison against a reference collection. Larva mines leaves of Greater Stitchwort and Sea Campion, living within a movable case.
