Prior to 2004, when larvae were found at four localities in Scotland in 2004 and 2005, the early stages of Pancalia schwarzella (Fabricius, 1798) appear to have been unknown. Since publication of that discovery in 2006 we are not aware of larvae being found elsewhere in the British Isles. During mid to late July 2008 we found larvae and adults at Braunton Burrows, Devon (VC. 4), an area of extensive sand dunes. This appears to be a rather late record of the adult, at least at a low elevation, the first county record and apparently the first record from England for over 50 years.

Following the discovery of five adults of Plutella haasi Staudinger, 1883, at Beinn Eighe, Wester Ross, Scotland (V.C. 105) in July 2009, larvae were found there and at three other localities in two new vice-counties and moths reared. All the larvae were on Arabidopsis petraea (L.) D. I. Dorof. As far as we are aware the larva has never been recorded previously, either in the British Isles or mainland Europe. An account of the habitats and biology is provided.

An account is given of the discovery of the larva of Bryotropha boreella (Douglas, 1851) at one locality in England, feeding on three species of moss. Descriptions and photographs are provided of the larva and pupa. Hitherto the larva was unknown.

An account is given of the early stages of Celypha rufana (Scopoli, 1763) in the wild. It is noted that the larva fed on decaying, withered and fresh leaves of four plant species in two families, and not on the roots of certain Asteraceae species as given in the literature.

An account is given of the larva of Biselachista eleochariella (Stainton, 1851), which has apparently not been described previously, mining the leaves of Carex panicea L., a newly recorded larval foodplant.
