Psychoides verhuella?

I was about to 'tidy up' some Hartstongue fern in our Loosley Row garden and noticed pupal cases on the underside of the leaves. I've been looking out for these for a while but these are the first I've found. There appears to be ten on the leaf shown and I think they're P. verhuella, is this correct?



  1. The larva is a very good match for the images on the dissection website Nigel. I look forward to seeing these uploaded shortly.
