=Scarce Alder Slender

Apparently scarce in our area. Part of a group of Caloptilia species that has become challenging to identify, due to the variation within and between the two broods, and the potential presence of additional similar species. Well-marked specimens from the over-wintering brood may be recognisable from markings, but dissection is needed for summer brood specimens and where there is any doubt.

Determination by Genitalia Examination (gen. det.) Required

Mine: Either the leaf or a good photograph required
