Phyllocnistis unipunctella (Stephens, 1834)
Status .....All of the records we have been made available, are from the south-west and west of Nottinghamshire. It will probably turn out to be quite a common leaf miner if deliberately searched for in other parts of the county. The larvae mine the leaves of Black Poplar.
