    Common Oak Case-bearer

    ColeophoridaeABH 37.005 B&F 490

    Probably widespread and common, feeding on oaks, and with most records of adults coming to light; undoubtedly under-recorded, especially recently, as identification cannot be done from the case and requires dissection of an adult.

    Adult Verification Grade: 4
