2.006 Eriocrania cicatricella (Zetterstedt, 1839)
< back
several larvae may occupy one mine


Food Plant: Betula (Birch)       

Mine: May

Notes: Blotch clouded, with some green matter left in mine. Larvae several (2-4) in one mine, small, translucent white (as shown). Care must be taken as several Eriocraniidae may mine the same leaf and the mines may run together giving the appearance of several larvae in one mine.

Data: 2002, Lancashire
