Stigmella aurella (Fabricius, 1775)
Status .....This is a widespread and very common moth, found in any habitat type where the leaf mines are easily found on Bramble. The mines turn silvery during the Winter months, making them even more conspicuous. Because of this, the mines can easily be recorded throughout the year.
