35.019 [B&F: 0857] Peach Twig Borer (Anarsia lineatella) Zeller, 1839

 

Notes: Added to the British list in 1957 when reared from an imported apricot. Between 1971 and 1999 there were eight further records of moths being reared from, or larvae found in imported plums, peaches and nectarines. Subsequently, it appears to have established itself in the wild around Arundel, Sussex, where frequent at light through the 1990s and subsequently very locally elsewhere in southern and south-east England. In Hampshire bred from an imported Spanish plum in 1971 by the late D.W.H. ffennell, and subsequently recorded at Southsea in July 2006. However, wild caught specimens are now almost certainly referrable to the recently split A. innoxiella. Wingspan 11-14 mm. Larva feeds within fruit of Peach and Plum, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas.
