A calendar of Nottinghamshire leafmining moths
An introduction to leaf-mining moths
 
This calendar of Nottinghamshire leafmining moths, is aimed at reminding recorders when to search productively for the larval stages of all leafmining moths currently recorded from within the county. To help further, we have also listed the preferred foodplants of each species, so hopefully this page will serve as a useful tool for those wishing to record a wider range of moths.

Much of the following text has been taking directly from our introduction to leafmining moths page, accessible via the above link.

Types of leafmines

Leafmines are the characteristic galleries created on either the upper or lower surfaces of leaves. Most mines are created by the internal feeding of lepidoptera larvae within the leaf, but others are the result of coleoptera, diptera or hymenoptera larval stages. Only lepidoptera are dealt with here.

In the majority of cases, leafmines are created by the larva eating within the leaf, between the upper and lower surfaces, but some species' mine other parts of the plant and even the seeds. The resulting mine is frequently obvious to the eye, even though all leafmines are generally small.

Leafmines can be categorised into two general types, known as gallery mines and blotch mines.

 
......
Both types offer self explanatory descriptions, but not all mines are visible on the leaf's upper surface, although there is usually some faint indication of a mine being present. Some mines can start off as gallery mines, but widen and eventually form a blotch mine.

Most gallery forming leafminers are either Stigmella, Ectoedemia or Bucculatrix species, most of which are indeterminable to identify to species level without dissection of the adults genitalia. Even those species which construct similar gallery mines within leaves and share the same foodplant, can usually be seperated by the method of frass dispersal within the mine. Even if frass dispersal is linear, the width of the frass in relation to the width of the gallery can sometimes clinch the identification. If present, larval colouration or head colour, is another good key to identification and neccessary in some of the Hawthorn feeding Stigmellas.

......
  Not all gallery mines are found on the leaves. Some species mine the young bark and others, such as the larva of Ectoedemia louisella, actually mines the samara of Field Maple before entering the developing seed. Of the few species which do this, Ectoedemia louisella is by far the commonest and quite easy to find.

Blotch mines again show considerable variation in size and shape and can be on either the upper or lower surface of the leaf. Frass within blotch mines is often dispersed unevenly, but some of of the Eriocranias produce distinctive "arcs" of frass, which helps towards the identification. Frass patterns or distribution in old mines, often cannot be used as an aid to correct identification, as the frass dries up and falls to the lower part of the leafmine.

Blotch mines produced by larvae of the Coleophoridae are more unusual in that the larva feeds inside the leaf, but constructs a protective case from a section of leaf in which it lives and feeds from. Experience gained through working with leafminers, will eventually mean that Coleophora blotch mines are distinctive enough to distinguish from other blotch mines at once.

Typical gallery mine Typical blotch mine ... ...
......
Coleophora larvae produce several blotches per leaf, usually visible from above and examination of the underside of the leaf, will show that each blotch has a circular hole, through which the larva has entered the mine and fed. There is no frass within the blotch mines made by Coleophora larvae, as this is expelled via the end of the larval case. The sheer variety of cases produced by Coleophora larvae, means that most are distinctive enough to enable an accurate species ID in the field. Identification of the adult moths is virtually impossible and is only accurately achieved by examination of the genitalia through a microscope.

Searching for leafmines

Searching for leafmines will always be productive. Familiarity with larval foodplant is essential and a bit of background research prior to going out certainly helps and often pays dividends. Visit the British Leafminers website for further details.

The first leafmines can be found in the depths of Winter, when the white upper surface gallery mines of Stigmella aurella, are easy to find on Bramble. Searching for Stigmella aurella, will usually reveal the elongated blotch mines of Emmetia marginea, another common Bramble feeding species. By late April, several of the Eriocrania leafmines will begin appear on Birch and Stigmella lapponica is another early species to look out for. As the Summer progresses, the potential number of species to be found increases dramatically and by the Autumn, as moth numbers at light traps begin to decline, there is still much of interest that can be looked for.

While ever there are leaves on trees, it will always be possible to look for leafmines. But even when the last of the leaves have fallen, there is still a number of mines that can be looked for. Looking on the fallen leaves of Oak for characteristic 'green islands' will often reveal the presence of species such as Ectoedemia subbimaculella and Ectoedemia heringi, two common leafminers. The 'green island' caused by the larva of Ectoedemia argyropeza, is shown in the accompanying photograph. These are surprisingly easy to find when the moth is present at a site on fallen Aspen leaves.

Calendar of Nottinghamshire leafmines

The list is alphabetical by species and uses the new numbering system (left column) and scientific species names, as used in the Checklist of the Lepidoptera of the British Isles (D. Agassiz, S. Beavan, R. Heckford. 2013). The old Bradley and Fletcher numbers are shown in grey. Months when the leafmines of any species should be looked for, are highlighted in grey.
