Main: (Argyresthiidae / Argyresthiinae)
20.021 [B&F: 0420] Cherry Fruit Moth (Argyresthia pruniella) (Clerck, 1759)

 

Notes: Common in gardens, woodland and orchards throughout the British Isles. Fairly well distributed in Hampshire, but recorded very infrequently on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 10-12 mm. The main confusion species is A. bonnetella, which see for differences. Larva mines shoots and fruits of Cherry, including wild, ornamental and cultivated varieties, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas, and over-wintering as an egg or small larva.
