Ectoedemia subbimaculella

We collected a few leafmines yesterday at Black Covert and amongst them was this one on Oak.

Larva in situ - showing dark head

Thanks to Ben Smart for helping me out with confirmation of a new one for vc46.  I will be trying to breed this through but will have to wait until next June for it to emerge....fingers crossed.
