After emptying the moth traps we looked over the surrounding foliage and found the following.
|Mompha raschkiella on Rosebay Willowherb|
This is a link to UK Moths if you would like to see the adult.
|Bucculatrix cidarella on Bog Myrtle|
This little moth also feeds on alder and the mines can be found during August & September.
We also found Stigmella aurella, this is very common on bramble...look on any bramble patch and it will most likely be there.
Moths in the trap included... Canary Shouldered Thorn, Pink-barred Sallow, Small Wainscot, Pinion-streaked Snout, Chevron, Eudonia angustea and Brindled Green.

Tony could you add the link to the British leafminers site? You can use the leaf keys to work out what might be about.ReplyDelete
