First Norfolk record in 2007. Successfully bred from capped mines found at two sights in Norfolk, both mines were on Viburnum opolus (Guelder Rose). The trees where the mines were found had been infested for some time! Mines are best searched for in early spring when no leaves are on the trees. The thickness of branch can vary from finger size to 30mm. Rob Dyke
