Early stages: Fowlmead Country Park

Made the most of a lovely spring afternoon with an hour at Fowlmead Country Park near Deal hunting for mines and larvae. The trip turned out to be very fruitful with the following:


Limnaecia phragmitella on Typha
  Limnaecia phragmitella

 Endothenia gentianaeana on Teasel (larvae examined to separate from E. marginana and will be reared through)

Mines - all on Quercus ilex, and dozens of each of the species listed below:

Ectoedemia heringella

Stigmella suberivora

and Phyllonorycter messaniella.
