Species Account

Most records are of leaf-mines.

Sutton & Beaumont, 1989: Old records of the atricapitellla group of species are unacceptable due to confusion with allied species (Emmet, MBGBI 1). The present species is probably widespread but at present there are confirmed records only from vice-counties 63 and 64.

2013 (CHF): See the comments under Stigmella atricapitella.
