Nepticulidae

113 (Small Birch Pigmy), Stigmella sakhalinella Puplesis, 1984

Status and ecology:

National Status: Local

A resident species. Larvae generally occur singly, sometimes sparingly in deciduous woods in the far west of the county and on Ashdown Forest. Apparently scarcer elsewhere, although perhaps seriously under-recorded. Single-brooded, flying mainly during May and June, although this is yet to be confirmed in Sussex. Larvae feed on silver birch. (Pratt, 2011)
