Ectoedemia atricollis

(Stainton, 1857)

Wingspan 5-6 mm.

The larvae of this species form mines on hawthorn, apple, pear and wild cherry. Initially, the larvae form galleries along the edge of the leaf, leading to the development of large blotches on the leaf margin.

The adult moths emerge in a single generation in June and are widespread throughout England and Wales.
