Coleophora repentis Klimesch, 1947
from Toll (1962a)
The young larvae begin by making a broad corridor mine, and make their first case out of it. They make large fleck mines, that may occupy three quarter of the leaf surface; to do this, they have the leave their cases. Before moving to a new leaf they make a new case out of the old mine. The case is a trivalved tubular leaf case of 4-6.5 mm with a mouth angle of 40-45°.
