Coleophora therinella

Tengström, 1848

Wingspan c. 15mm.

One of a number of very similar-looking streaked Coleophorids, which as adults can only reliably be identified by genitalia dissection, this species is quite local and has been recorded mainly to light in the southern half of England, as well as in the Burren, Co. Clare.

The larva feeds on black-bindweed (Fallopia convolvulus), in a portable case typical of the genus.

Adult moths are on the wing in June and July.
