A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Hi Mick, yes it is. Assuming that it couldn't have wandered or fallen onto the leaf from anywhere else then this must be Coleophora gryphipennella. The case looks good for that species and the only other rose-feeding coleophorid is the nationally scarce Coleophora violacea whose case looks quite different.
Thanks Dave. That's great! A new reserve record.
