|Phyllonorycter junoniella mine on Cowberry|
The species is already on the VC41 list, but the only record is from way back in 1926 (F. Norton) and is from Welsh St Donat's on the Vale coast - a long long way from any Cowberry. Dave provided the following information about this early record:
"Norton's records come from Hallett's annotated fauna of Glamorgan, and it is possible that there may have been a specimen but it's not one that Jake & I looked for during the research stage.
That said, looking at the record in Hallett's list, it does look to say "Lithocolletis racoiniella Scott" - which we obviously misread as Lithocolletis vacciniella (Stainton). There is no name in Kloet and Hinks, and as far as I can tell the only Lithocolletis that Scott described is irradiella (now lautella). Indeed there is a mis-translation on tinternet that reads vacciniella as racciniella - but Hallett wasn't using ORS software to work out his species names, and it is unlike him to get spelling and authority wrong, so a real mystery."
So, not officially a first county record, but probably the first genuine record.
