Morley’s Final Catalogue: An abundant kind among roses. Assington Thicks in early June 1899, and frequent in Monks Soham garden in August (Morley); Hacheston (Harker).

Recent Status: A common species in Suffolk.

Life Style: A single brooded species. The adults occur in July and August. Oviposition takes place on the underside of a leaf close to the main vein on Rosa species, Sanguisorba species and Filipendula vulgaris. The larvae mine the leaves and leave the mine to pupate in a cocoon on the ground where they overwinter.

Identification: The adult moth has an orange head tuft and collar. The wings are black with white cilia and a white fascia formed from a long slightly oblique costal mark reaching a large dorsal spot. The moth can be identified by breeding out from a mine or by genitalia dissection.
The larva mines on the underside of a leaf initially creating a wide contorted gallery that can become a blotch leaving a trail of frass. More Info

Determination by Genitalia Examination (gen. det.) Required

Mine: Either the leaf or a good photograph required
