Recent Status: One of the commoner species of Tortricids in Suffolk

Life Style: A single or occasionally double brooded species that flies by day and night and comes to light during May through to September. The larvae feed from spun leaves on a wide variety of deciduous and evergreen trees. Larvae will hibernate.

Identification: The species has a characteristic wing shape and a complex pattern but is exceedingly variable in colour and shades of the parts of that pattern. The pale end, centrally on the costa, of a very oblique fascia, usually remains evident through all the variants. More Info
