On Norway Maple...

The photos below show Norway maple leaves (from a planted population at Llanelli) collected today. Is it Phyllonorycter joannisi perhaps - or something else? Please correct or confirm.

  1. Yes, P. joannisi, the miner formerly known as P. platanoidella. It's having a good year in Cardiff - I usually see them in small numbers but there are lots this year.

  2. Thanks once more George. What about the snowberry mine in the previous blog - if you`re in the mood please?!

  3. Looks like Dave has beaten me to it. The linear mines on snowberry look very old and it's unlikely they can be identified to species.
