125 Emmetia marginea

(Haworth, 1828)

Wingspan 7-8 mm.

A common species throughout Britain, having two generations, the moths flying in May and June, and again in August.

The larvae mine the leaves of bramble (Rubus), creating a funnel-shaped blotch, the second generation feeding through the winter.

The moths are small, indistinct brownish insects with a slight metallic sheen.
