35.113 [B&F: N/A] Scrobipalpa salicorniae (Hering, 1889)

 

Previously considered as a synonym of S. salinella which is now considered a separate species and not found in western Europe.

Nationally scarce (Na) and difficult to find in saltmarshes on the southern and eastern coasts of England, from Cornwall to Lincolnshire; Co. Durham; Lancashire; Pembrokeshire, south Wales; in Scotland, East Lothian and Nairn (MBGBI Vol 4 part 2). In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight mainly recorded from Southsea, with a few elsewhere on Hayling Island and at Newtown on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 11-15 mm. Most likely to be confused with S. instabilella, but some examples can be mistaken for S. atriplicella, or S. obsoletella; an unusual form of S. suaedella is similar to S. salicorniae, but the stigmata are usually much smaller and more indistinct in S. suaedella (MBGBI Vol 4 part 2). Larva mines leaves of Glasswort, Sea Aster and Annual Sea-blite.
