    Firethorn Leaf Miner

    Now is a good time of year to spot and record the distinctive leaf mines of the Firethorn Leaf Miner, Phyllonorycter leucographella. The adult moths are difficult to identify but the distinctive leaf mines on Firethorn (Pyracantha) are easy to spot. Please check your local Pyracantha and send us your photos of the early life stage of this distinctive moth.
