Nepticulidae

88 (Chestnut Pigmy), Stigmella samiatella (Zeller, 1839)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Local

Resident. Larvae are often fairly common in deciduous woods in West Sussex but only occur in singletons in East Sussex. Perhaps seriously under-recorded in both vice counties. Double-brooded flying mainly in May and August although this has yet to be confirmed in Sussex. Larvae feed on sweet chestnut and oak. (Pratt, 2011)
