Main: (Batrachedridae / Batrachedrinae)
36.002 [B&F: 0879] Batrachedra pinicolella (Zeller, 1839)

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in coniferous woodland and plantations throughout much of England. In Hampshire only recorded in numbers from the Lyndhurst / Ashurst area of the New Forest and as individuals to light in Southsea, but probably overlooked (to the uninitiated it is not particularly moth-like!). Recorded from the Isle of Wight for the first time in 2013, possibly drifting from the New Forest. Wingspan 10-13 mm. Very similar to the extremely rare immigrant species B. parvulipunctella, which see. Larva mines needles of Scots Pine and Norway Spruce, subsequently living within a silken tube or tent.
