Micro Moth Tip - Coleophora laricella

Perhaps the easiest Coleophora to find and identify at this time of year.
Cases of Coleophora laricella can be found on the twigs of larch as in the photo below.
The first two instars can be found later in the year mining the needles turning them (needles) white.
