forms a short twisting mine

Food Plant: Rosa (Rose)

Egg: Usually underside of leaf

Mine: June - July, September - October

Notes: A short gallery with linear frass. The larva is yellow, head brown (as shown). The moth needs to be bred out to identify this species, as the mines of S.anomalella can be similar. A cocoon was formed on 12.viii.2015 and the adult emerged 31.viii.2015, which enabled identification.

National Status: Local

Bradley No: 93

Data: 09.viii.2015, Hessle, South-east Yorkshire, VC61
