Nepticulidae

70 (Willow Pigmy), Stigmella obliquella (Heinemann, 1862)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Local

A resident species. Larvae are sometimes fairly common to common in a few damp habitats in West Sussex, though they are apparently rare in East Sussex, but the species is perhaps under recorded in both vice-counties. Double brooded, flying during May and August, though this has yet to be confirmed in Sussex. Larvae feed on white willow, crack willow and weeping willow. (Pratt, 2011)
