Main: (Coleophoridae / Coleophorinae)
37.090 [B&F: 0577] Coleophora artemisicolella Bruand, [1855]

 

Local on waste ground, rough grassland and roadside verges throughout much of England and Wales, more numerous in the south and east. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight found chiefly close to the coast in the south-east of the county, with isolated records in the north of the county from Deadwater Valley, Stockbridge Down, Leckford, and Wildern, near Andover. Wingspan 10-13 mm. 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 and leaves of Mugwort, living within a movable case.
