Coleophora binderella - Distribution map

Please note that the NBN Gateway map service has been terminated as of 1 April 2017.

As soon as a replacement map service is available, distribution maps will hopefully appear here again.

In the meantime, you can get some idea of distribution from the NBN Atlas website.

Coleophora binderella

(Kollar, 1832)

Wingspan 8-12 mm.

The eggs of this species are laid on the underside of leaves of alder, hazel, birch or hornbeam.

The larva creates its case from a portion of the leaf, and then attaches to the underside of the leaf, with the larva mining the leaf from beneath. The larvae overwinter in the case attached to a leaf or twig.

The adults emerge in late June or July and are widespread in woodland where the foodplants are found.
