Coleophora badiipennella

(Duponchel, [1843])

Wingspan 9-11 mm.

Locally distributed throughout much of England, the adults fly in June and July and occasionally come to light.

The larva constructs a case from a fragment of a leaf of the foodplant, elm (Ulmus), after mining a narrow gallery.

It occurs around the edges of woodland and prefers saplings to mature trees.
