Phyllonorycter schreberella (Fabricius, 1781)
Status .....Appears to be a somewhat uncommon leaf miner in Nottinghamshire, but the lack of suitable Elm doesn't help. The mines showed in the photographs below, were found on the young suckers of Elm growing along a shaded ride, deep within an old coppiced plantation at Wellow Park in 2011. The first Nottinghamshire record was from Cuckney in 2010 (Hind, S.).
