Coleophora discordella Zeller, 1849
Lotus Case-bearer

Family: Coleophoridae
Checklist Number: 37.044

Occassionally recorded, but not as common as the distribution of the food plant would suggest.

The larva feeds on bird's-foot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus), building a case from silk and pieces of leaf.
