    Ectoedemia longicaudella: Brief Summary
    provided by wikipedia

    Ectoedemia longicaudella is a moth of the Nepticulidae family. It is found from most of Europe (except Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain and Denmark), east to Belgorod and Kaluga in Russia. It is also present in the Near East.

    The wingspan is 7-10.5 mm. Adults are on wing in June and July, in Yugoslavia adults have also been recorded in May and occasionally in early August.

    The larvae feed on various Quercus species. Unlike most other Nepticulidae species, the larvae mine the bark of their host, rather than the leaves.
