Main: (Momphidae / Momphinae)
40.011 [B&F: 0880] Mompha langiella (Hübner, 1796)

 

Local in woodland in parts of England and Wales, more numerous in the west, rare elsewhere. In the south of Hampshire the mines of this species are often locally abundant, but until a specimen was bred by Rob Edmunds in Fleet in 2003 it had not been recorded in vice-county 12, and on the Isle of Wight first recorded in 2009 at Combley Great Wood. The photo shows one bred in 2004, again by Rob. Wingspan 9-10.5 mm. Larva mines leaves of Enchanter's-nightshade and Great Willowherb.
