Morley’s Final Catalogue: Frequent everywhere among roses. Southwold and Flixton (Ctw); quite common at Monks Soham light in July.

Recent Status: Much less common than in Morley’s time.

Life Style: A single brooded species that comes to light from May to August. The larvae feed in spun terminal shoots of Rosa and occasionally Malus. They hibernate in the larval habitation.

Identification: This species differs from H. nubiferana and H. pruniana in having a more irregular edge to the dark band and the pale part usually being a shade of light ochre. If there is uncertainty then genitalia dissection can determine the species. More Info
