Main: (Cosmopterigidae / Cosmopteriginae)
34.005 [B&F: 0894] Cosmopterix zieglerella (Hübner, [1810])

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) in hedgerows in south-eastern England, from Kent northwards to Norfolk and westwards to Berkshire. In Hampshire first reported in 2003, since when leaf mines have been found in scattered locations across the north and centre, and first reported from the Isle of Wight in 2014. Wingspan 8.5-10.5 mm. Very similar to C. schmidiella, which is now believed to be extinct in the British Isles, and C. orichalcea, which has a different arrangement of metallic markings in the basal area of the wing. Larva mines leaves of Hop, over-wintering in a cocoon.

Update: Status review, December 2019.
