Marmara salictella

Wikipedia Abstract

Marmara salictella is a moth of the Gracillariidae family. It is known from Québec in Canada and Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, Virginia, California and the Atlantic states of the United States. The larvae feed on Salix species, including Salix lasiolepis and Salix lutea. They create an extremely long and narrow mine in young twigs. The mine is only a tract beneath the young and delicate cuticle of the branches.
