I made a daytime reconnaissance visit to some woodland near Marlow, Bucks today in advance of regular trapping at the site later in the year and while there I happened to notice a case of the psychid Taleporia tubulosa above head height on an ash trunk.  That made me look closer at other trees and a further eight were found with relative ease, all lower down on beech trunks.  The case length of them all was circa 15mm and a phone camera record shot appears below.
