Main: (Momphidae / Momphinae)
40.014 [B&F: 0881] Mompha terminella (Humphreys & Westwood, 1845)


Nationally scarce (Nb) in shady woodland throughout much of England and Wales. Widely distributed across Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight, but very infrequently recorded and probably absent from much of north-east Hampshire. Wingspan 7-9 mm. Could be confused with M. locupletella, but smaller and darker, and with cilia pale dorsally. Larva mines leaves of Enchanter's-nightshade, over-wintering as a pupa.
