Ectoedemia decentella (Herrich & Schäffer, 1855)
Status .....Local across the UK, but there is probably an element of under recording. This is one of the most distinctive of all the Ectodemias to identify visually as an adult and was attracted to MV light (currently our only record). The larvae mine the seeds of Sycamore.
