Chrysoclista linneella (Clerk, 1759)
lime cosmet, linnaeus’s spangle-wing
From August till April the larve lives in a tunnel under the bark; its presence is betrayed by bright orange frass that comes to the day in vark fissures. It is moot whether the larva pupates in its tunnel, or in the litter after having left. Preference for old and diseased of regularly pruned trees.
Tilia cordata, x europaea.
