4.017 Stigmella centifoliella (Zeller, 1848)
< back


Food Plant: Rosa (Rose)

Egg: Usually underside of leaf

Mine: June - July, September - October

Notes: A short gallery with linear frass. The larva is yellow, head brown. The moth needs to be bred out to identify this species, as the mines of S.anomalella can be similar. A cocoon was formed (as shown) on 12.viii.2015 and the adult emerged 31.viii.2015, which enabled identification.

Data: 12.viii.2015 ex mine 09.viii.2015, Hessle, South-east Yorkshire, VC61
