Families: Lyonetiidae, Momphidae, Nepticulidae

Family: Lyontiidae

A small family of moths, with only 9 species recorded in Great Britain. The Apple Leaf Minor is a very common species.

Family: Momphidae

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.

Family: Nepticulidae

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.
