Phyllonorycter joannisi (Joannis, 1920) .... Formerly known as Phyllonorycter platanoidella
Status .....This moth has spread rapidly northwards in the UK over the last few years and is fairly common at many Nottinghamshire sites now. The leaf mines are found on Norway Maple, so helps the identification of this species, as there are two other white Phyllonorycters which are both very similar.
