Copycat?

I`m not sure whether the sycamore leaf below shows the activity of Caloptilia rufipenella. I picked it yesterday afternoon whilst looking for leaf mines at Penygaer, Llanelli. Is it as suggested?
Sam had previously posted another of his useful and educative notes, the latest being on this species, on the always worth reading Monmouthshire moth blog site.


I also flushed a rush veneer from rough grassland.

  1. Looks plausible, but was there a little mine somewhere in the leaf?

  2. I`ll check the leaf/leaves that I`ve kept...

  3. It might be helpful to have a link to the Monmouthshire blog site on ours.
