Gowerton Wednesday morning.

Mild and calm, still 12 degrees first thing.
25 species, all fairly ordinary, plus this which I can't put a name to.
It was pretty small but looks quite fresh, so any ideas very welcome.
Also found these blotch mines in hazel. Tenanted but the occupants do not show against the light.

Blotches in Hazel. Are they even lepidopteran?
Any thoughts?
To light 16 Sept. 3.5mm forewing



  1. It looks like our old friend Elachista canapennella.

    The blotches are made by Phyllonorycter coryli.
