A small family of moths, with only 9 species recorded in Great Britain. The Apple Leaf Minor is a very common species.
A handful of species have been recorded in the garden so far. Most momphidae are associated with willowherbs as a larval food plant. We are hoping to see such plants establish in the wetland patch and perhaps record the larva of some of these species.
Some of the smallest moths about and often difficult to tell apart. Ectoedemia decentella is a more frequently identified species and we feel rather awesome in a tiny way.
