Coleophora genistae

Stainton, 1857546 / 37.041

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.

Local and scarce. On Petty Whin. The foodplant is rare in the two counties. Recorded for Middlesex by Stainton in his Manual.

Determination by Genitalia Examination Required

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

Recorded in 6 (15%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1855.
Last Recorded in 2020.
