Is this Ypsolopha parenthesella and who's the miner?

A new tactic: I now ask a question, rather than suggest an opinion! We all know I'm hopeless at micro ID; please help if you can.


  1. Looks like parenthesella rather than ustella and the leaf mine looks dipteran - Phytomyza sp?

  2. I hope it works Steve. Yesterday I asked a question and gave a sort of of opinion, and that hasn't worked. Having said that, mine was an LBJ and yours brightly-coloured with distinctive features. Perhaps we should give up on the LBJs!

  3. I most certainly should, Chris! Thanks, Ian.
