Firethorn Leaf-miner in our Bridgend home

Our daughter Holly discovered this pretty little moth in our garden lounge, just inside the house today. She seems to have this knack of finding the tiny! It is right alongside our lovely big Pyracantha! This species has spread across UK apparently. We think it is Firethorn Leaf-miner / Phyllonorycter leucographella. not a very good photo sorry, but better than none at all.

  1. Looks spot on to me. Check your pyracantha for white blotches on the leaves made by the larvae.
