Species Account

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Recorded from all five vice-counties, mines fairly common on rose.

2013 (CHF):Virtually all of our records are from the distinctive leaf mines on rose. The early gallery is very convoluted and quite unlike that of the Stigmella species. It then widens into an elongated blotch. It tends to be local in the county but can be quite common where it does occur.
