Happy Christmas (and leafminer queries)

A Happy Christmas all!

Nothing in the trap for weeks so I'm reheating some leftovers - I attempted to take some pictures back in October - had a look over the UK leafminer site, put it to one side and then had a look today.

I've made some tentative IDs, can someone confirm?

I think I have

Lyonetia clerkella (apple) - also seems to be on the Cherry.

Parornix fagivora (copper beech)

Phyllonorycter corylifoliella (apple)

Phyllonorycter leucographella (apple)


  1. Hi Mark, the first is probably correct although I would have preferred a better shot (Lyonetia clerkella tends to be very common where it occurs). I'm not sure about the second one on beech but the last two are definitely correct. Happy Christmas!

  2. thanks Dave. I'll put up some more pics - just in case it makes it any easier. Happy Christmas and thanks for all your help!
