Phyllocnistis citrella (Stainton, 1856) 
An adventive species of tropical origins and one which in the UK, is thought to only be found in garden centres on imported Citrus plants. There is believed to be just a single Nottinghamshire record, of a mine found on potted Lemon (Citrus limon) plants for sale at a garden centre on the A52 at Nottingham in October 2021. The mine was very fresh and the larva had already pupated in the small leaf fold towards the top of the lower left photograph.
