Tiny but distinctive

Among the usual seasonal moths in the Llandaff North garden trap last night was this Ectoedemia decentella, one of the few Ectoedemia species with distinctive markings.

This is a recent arrival in Glamorgan with previous county records in Dave Slade's and Chris Manley's gardens. The larvae feed in the keys of sycamores.
