Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Widespread and common throughout all five vice-counties.
2013 (CHF): Locally common in the south and centre of the county. The larvae mine bramble leaves. A short corridor leads to a funnel-shaped long elliptical white blotch with scalloped edges. It is unlikely to be mistaken for any other species. The adult moths sometimes come to light and look a little like Tischeria ekebladella but have darker margins to the wing and a dark tornal dot when fresh. The resting posture is a little less triangular.
