37.081 [B&F: 0561] Coleophora therinella Tengström, 1848

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) on waste ground and farmland in England, south of a line from The Wash to the Severn estuary, and in Ireland from the Burren district of Co. Clare (MBGBI Vol 3). In Hampshire occasional at light in the south-east of the county, at Botley Wood and in Southsea, outside this area, recorded only at Teg Down, Winchester, where the first cases ever to be found in Britain were discovered in August 1990. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1900. Wingspan 13-16 mm. Very similar to C. peribenanderi, from which only separated in 1942. 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 feeds on seeds of Black Bindweed, living within a movable case.
