37.049 .... B&F 0533
Pistol Case-bearer Coleophora anatipennella (Hübner, 1796)
Status .....Probably quite a widespread Coleophora, although our own records would seem to indicate that this moth is commonest in the Sherwood Forest area of Nottinghamshire. Larval cases and feeding signs, should be looked for on the leaves of Blackthorn.
