49.014 [B&F: 0979] Brown Oak Tortrix (Archips crataegana) (Hübner, [1799])

 

Notes: Local in woodland throughout much of England and Wales. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight scarce and barely annual in scattered localities. Wingspan male 19-22 mm, female 23-28 mm. Usually larger than Variegated Golden Tortrix A. xylosteana and differing in the broader forewing which in general appearance is browner and less variegated. The male is further separated by the median fascia which is obsolete on the costa; the female by the fuscous reticulation and the more prominent apex of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds on deciduous trees and bushes, including Oak, Elm, Ash, Lime and Sallow, living within a spun or rolled leaf, and over-wintering as an egg
