Main: (Elachistidae / Elachistinae)
38.045 [B&F: 0629] Elachista utonella Frey, 1856

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in bogs and on acid heaths throughout much of England and Ireland. In Hampshire apparently restricted to Leckford, Emer Bog, Titchfield Haven, Winnall Moors and the Moors NR, Bishop's Waltham, and strangely absent from the New Forest; there have been no recent records from the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 8-9 mm. Can be reliably separated from other similar Elachista species only by dissection of the genitalia. Larva mines leaves of various sedges.
