More Micros

A quick search round Ynyslas this morning just after looking for birds at high tide.
A common leafmine on Bramble Coptotriche marginea.
Stigmella anomalella on Rosa priminellifolia - the Rose Leaf Miner.
Coleophora gryphipennella (cases) on Rosa priminellifolia - this is only the second record for vc46; but it feeds on all Rose species.

  1. Well done. I've been looking for Coptotriche marginea on Bramble here, but so far haven't found any.

  2. I thought that may have been the one you mentioned when we met up.
    There were a lot on one plant but nothing on any neighbouring bushes.
