Micros in the woods

Hi All,

I make occasional visits to the Oxford area where I grew up, and try to do a bit of moth recording whilst there.  Last weekend I went to Wytham Woods where I was studying leaf-miners that feed on hawthorn - the majority of the Stigmella species as well as the two hawthorn-mining Phyllonorycters and Parornix anglicella were there.  A few case-bearers and the like turned up too.

 Stigmella oxyacanthella
 Coleophora spinella
 Stigmella regiella
Predated Psyche casta case (presumably by a bird)
