Coleophora badiipennella

This Coleophora from Casehill Woods on 1st June turned out to be badiipennella, which is new for VC41.

I had a probable case of this species on Elm in Cardiff several years ago, which I tried to rear through but was parasitised, so it's good to be able to add it to the county list at last.

Thanks to Dave for confirmation.
