That little Elachista...

I`ve now had a chance to check the tiny Elachista (4mm) that I spotted on the ground by my boot yesterday (19/4). I make it to be E.albifrontella - with a white head (which I did n`t notice yesterday), no extra spot at the termen (as in apipunctella) and more faintly white-banded above (not visible in this photo) than would be E.luticomella.
