Acrolepia autumnitella

Last month (20th) I collected a caterpillar from a large "window" in a leaf (by the football club in Borth). At the time I thought that the plant was bindweed, but I now think it was bittersweet. (Ina won't believe any of my leaf mine records now!) Within a day it had crawled out of the leaf and we watched it spin a chrysalis, and then this morning it had hatched: Acrolepia autumnitella.

  1. Great Simon! Only found last year and in 2 different locations. This will be a third. Maybe I should be looking at Bittersweet!
