Bucculatrix artemisiella

Bucculatrix artemisiella is a moth of the Bucculatricidae family. It is found in most of Europe (except Ireland, the Mediterranean islands and the Balkan Peninsula).

The wingspan is 7–8 mm.

The larvae feed on Artemisia campestris. They mine the leaves of their host plant. The larvae slit the margin of the leaf, and from there make a ribbon-shaped fleck mine that appears as a transparent seam along the leaf margin.
