Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in orchards, gardens, hedgerows, open woodland and scrub in southern England, northwards to Yorkshire, and north Wales. In Hampshire an essentially garden or suburban species, colonies often affecting a single apple tree, and has been attracted to pheromone lure in several localities. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 15-22 mm. Day-flying. The early stages may be sought during the winter months, but the use of synthetic pheromone lures used to attract males has led to a marked increase in records of the species in recent years. Larva feeds within bark of Apple, Rowan, Pear and Almond.
