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) ?

  1. Thanks Ian. I agree with the P acerifoliella and Mompha raschkiella. The Crataegus is likely to be a fold from Parornix anglicella (but usually I'd want to see a small tentiform mine alongside). Phyllonorycter rajella can also be on Alnus incana, so you'd probably need to breed this one on, or beat the adults (which Jon has done in Pembrey).
