Morley’s Final Catalogue: Bentley Woods (Pyett, Gibbs); Ipswich and Sutton Heath in 1928-35 (Whit.); common about oaks at Glemham Magna (Bloomf.); Southwold (Ctw); Gorleston in August 1935 (Mly).

Recent Status: Recorded commonly across Suffolk.

Life Style: A double brooded species flying from May to October. The larvae mine leaves of deciduous Quercus and Castanea. They pupate in the larval habitation.

Identification: The moth is similar to T. dodonaea but larger at 8 to 11mm wingspan whilst T. dodonaea is 6 to 7mm. T. dodonaea also lacks the darker wing tip of T. ekebladella. The larval mines are similar on the upper surface of a leaf with the frass arranged concentrically from the origin of feeding. T. dodonaea mines turn a chestnut brown, T. ekebladella mines remain pale. More Info
