Some leaf mines near Burry Port.
Went for a walk this afternoon in the Millennium Coastal Park E of Burry Port, looking at the (planted) woodland areas. Found several leaf mines:
Above: Phyllonorycter acerifoliella on Acer campestris.
Above: another Phyllonorycter on Alnus incana - P. strigulatella perhaps?
Above: Chamerion angustifolium with Mompha sp. - raschkiella possibly?
Above: Crataegus with what please (if identifiable) ?
