Identification: A small Cydia species. The forewings are brownish grey with the scales tipped with deep golden yellow resulting in a peppered effect which is weak or absent at the base and stronger towards the termen, especially in the ocellus which has strong black dashes. There are five strong white strigulae on the costa. The first subtends a silver and white fascia to the dorsum which is angled at 110 degrees mid-wing. The second subtends a silver and white fascia, skirting the ocellus to reach the tornus. The fascia from the fourth spot is broken before skirting the ocellus and the fifth fascia is weak and skirts the apex with a silvery white mark on the termen. More Info
