Microlepidoptera in The Netherlands in 2006.
In this 18th annual report we record two species new for The Netherlands: the migrant Antigastra catalaunalis (Crambidae) from the provinces of Zeeland and Overijssel, and Coleophora boreella (Coleophoridae) from Zuid-Holland, hitherto only known from northern Europe. We also refer to three species, recorded as new elsewhere: Schiffermuelleria schaefferella (Oecophoridae), Mompha jurassicella (Momphidae) and Monochroa elongella (Gelechiidae). Apart from A. catalaunalis, the autumn of 2006 yielded several other rare migrating Crambidae: Diplopseustis perieresalis, Diasemiopsis ramburialis en Spoladea recurualis. The following other remarkable findings are reported: abundant occurrence of Stigmella freyella in the 'Westland', with Convolvulus soldanella as new host; the second Dutch record of Zelleria hepariella, the third record of Glyphipterix forsterella; a first record after 20 years of Stephensia brunnichella, the first inland record of Elachista scirpi; the third record of Eudemis porphyrana outside Zuid-Limburg; the third specimen of Cydia inquinatana, and the eighth specimen since 1868 of Cydia microgrammana. In total we report 73 species, 28 new provincial records, particularly for Zeeland and Gelderland.
