A short trip to the woods today yielded over 40 species of leaf miner, with many families represented.
There were thousands and thousands of Phyllonorycter coryli on Hazel, with P. esperella on Hornbeam not too far behind.
Many other species were well into the high hundreds: Caloptilia syringella, Stigmella tityrella, S. hemargyrella, Phyllonorycter messaniella and P. maestingella included.
Some of the highlights included:
Euspilapteryx (Eucalybites) auroguttella
