Parornix loganella

(Stainton, 1848)

Wingspan c. 10mm.

A largely northern species, occurring from Lancashire and Yorkshire northwards with a few records from further south.

Occupying woodland and moorland/hillsides with plenty of the foodplant birch Betulae , the early stages are very similar to those of P. Betulae , initially forming a gallery, then later a fold in a leaf.

There is a single generation, with adults flying in May-June and larvae present in July -August.
