moth - Stigmella multispicata

moth - Stigmella multispicata
Cross Plains, Dane County, Wisconsin, USA
September 4, 2010
Size: ~2.5mm - length

Moved from Nepticulidae.

Cited as a distribution record for Stigmella multispicata in:

Nieukerken, Erik J. van, Daniel Owen Gilrein & Charles S. Eiseman. 2018. Stigmella multispicata RocienÄ— & Stonis, an Asian leafminer on Siberian elm now widespread in eastern North America. ZooKeys [in press].

Stigmella quercipulchella?
This is just a guess but it looks similar to images at BOLD here and seems to match Chambers description which I found on p. 90 of Publications. Entomology, Volume 12, Part 2
By Cornell University here.

My hope is someday to rear on
My hope is someday to rear one of these from a leaf mine. These tiny moths showed up fairly frequently to the lights at night.

Moved from Moths.

This looks like something in Nepticulidae, possibly Stigmella.
