Argyresthia trifasciata

This titchy micro was trapped by James Hunter in Dartford, May 2012

From UKMoths: This tiny but quite distinctive moth was not discovered in Britain until 1982, when one was caught in London. More recently the species has become widely associated with gardens, and are now regularly found in good numbers around conifers, especially juniper (Juniperus) and Leyland cypress (Cupressocyparis leylandii).
