Phyllonorycter dubitella (Herrich-Schäffer, 1855
Thought only a short while ago, not to have occurred in Nottinghamshire before a number of leaf mines were found on Goat Sallow at Dukes Wood in November 2022. However, there appears to have been a record of a moth bred from a leaf mine from Colwick in the 1990 (Boot, A.). There are several Phyllonorycters which mine the leaves of Goat Sallow, including both P. dubitella and P. hilarella and the mines and pupae of both species are impossible to tell apart. The mines illustrated below, are considered most likely to be those of dubitella.
