< back
early mine and fold

 

Food Plant: Crataegus (Hawthorn) Sorbus torminalis (Wild Service Tree) occasionally Fragaria (Strawberry)spp.

Egg: Underside of a leaf

Mine: July; August-September

Pupa: In a folded leaf edge or on leaf-litter

Notes: In a small Phyllonorycter-like mine initially, but with brown rather than green lower epidermis- this distinguishes it from Phyllonorycter oxyacanthae mines, which have the green lower epidermis (the early mine and fold are shown). Later in two or more successive cones formed by folding leaf-lobes downwards
