Stigmella aurella



The mines of this little moth should be almost everywhere.  Mostly on Bramble, but also on Geum (Avens), Fragaria (Wild Strawberry) and Agrimonia (Agrimony).

You can see by the red (2km) squares where they have been recorded.

I think it’s a little like sparrows in the birding world... they get overlooked.
You can see a photo of the mine on the British Leafmines web site. http://www.leafmines.co.uk/html/Lepidoptera/S.aurella.htm

  1. I've got quite a lot of blobs to submit to you for this moth from earlier visits this year.

  2. Ah, goodo!! There should be quite a few more 'blobs' on maps when this year's records arrive.
