Caloptilia alni Kumata, 1966 

( Fig. 10EView FIGURE 10)

Material examined. Russia: SO, Sakhalin Island, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Gagarin Park , 46.96 N, 142.75E, 69 m alt., Alnus hirsuta  , 11.VII.2017, 1 larva, NK619GoogleMaps  , MK 403684View Materials, deposited in  INRA.

Leaf mine. The mine is a small, slightly contorted brown blotch between secondary veins near leaf margin ( Fig. 10EView FIGURE 10), with scattered dark grains of frass. The larva soon leaves the mine and continues feeding in the two successive shelters: first in the downwards folded (or slightly rolled) leaf margin, usually on the same leaf, then in a neighboring leaf rolled downwards (commonly rolled starting from the tip; often a half or more leaf is rolled) ( Fig. 10EView FIGURE 10). Pupation site is unknown.

Trophic specialization. Monophagous on Alnus  : A. hirsuta  , A. japonica  ( Betulaceae  ) ( De Prins & De Prins 2018).

Distribution. Russia: RFE—AO, KK, JAO, PK, SO ( Baryshnikova 2008; Baryshnikova & Dubatolov 2016); Japan ( Kumata 1966), Korea, China (Baryshnikova 2016).
