Nepticulidae

41 (Oak-bark Pigmy), Ectoedemia atrifrontella (Stainton, 1851)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Unknown

Nationally Notable Class A. This resident species is in danger of extinction in both vice-counties. Scarce, generally amongst deciduous woodland. Single brooded, flying mainly from June to August, although the only known Sussex adult is dated May 25th 1933. Larvae feed on the leaves of seedling oaks. (Pratt, 2011)

Tony Davis: 06-10-2012

Larvae feed in bark not leaves. Identification of mines now cannot be certain due to presence in Britain of E. longicaudella. Adults must be reared for certain ID.
