Main: (Elachistidae / Elachistinae)
38.028 [B&F: 0599] Elachista alpinella Stainton, 1854

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in marshes, water-meadows and other damp areas throughout most of the British Isles. In Hampshire known in the past from Titchfield Haven and Leckford. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 9-13 mm. A rather variable species, however, the dark head and incomplete fascia separate it from E. atricomella and E. kilmunella, but the small obscure upland form can easily be passed over as E. humilis (MBGBI Vol 3). Larva mines leaves of various sedges.
