Coleophora fuscocuprella
Hazel Case-bearer

Herrich-Schäffer, 1855503 / 37.020

Morley’s Final Catalogue: Not listed.

Recent Status: There is a single record for Suffolk.

Life Style: A single brooded species that flies during May and June. The larvae mine from a portable case on Corylus and Betula. They hibernate fully grown and pupate away from the foodplant.

Identification: The adult of this species can be identified provided a good specimen. The wings, head and thorax are a shining dark fuscous. The antennae are clothed with appressed dark fuscous scales to around half-length where they become white with dark rings. The ringing fades towards the tip. There are no similar species in Suffolk. Identification should be confirmed by identified by genitalia dissection. The images in the Moths and Butterflies of Great Britain and Ireland should be used as reference for this.
The larval case is strongly curved and the later parts have many projecting leaf pieces giving it a bulky appearance. Their feeding behaviour results in a peppering of small blotches. More Info

Determination by Genitalia Examination (gen. det.) Required

Case: A good quality photo or specimen of the case and plant/pabulum is required.
