Coleophora conspicuella

Zeller, 1849539 / 37.058

General comments:
All of the Coleophora species in our area are under-recorded; naming most requires either finding the larvae or dissecting the genitalia of the adults (or both!). For this reason, notes made here are deliberately short, but will be updated on a species by species basis as information surfaces.

Widespread and common. Spreading - first record made in 2018. On Common Knapweed.

Retained Specimen / Photograph will be Required.

Case: A good quality photo or specimen of the case and plant/pabulum is required.

Recorded in 17 (41%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1978.
Last Recorded in 2024.
