Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.145 [B&F: 1088] Pseudosciaphila branderiana (Linnaeus, 1758)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) wherever there are stands of aspen, in woodland, gardens and parkland across much of southern England, occasionally north to Yorkshire. In Hampshire very local on a few sites, particularly Botley Wood and Pamber Forest, and seldom straying far. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1900. Wingspan 21-27 mm. One of the largest of the British Olethreutines, this species is further characterised by the general forewing coloration and the obsolete or obsolescent markings; the typical almost unicolorous form and the fasciate f. wahlbomiana appear to be equally frequent in occurrence [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Aspen, living within a spun or rolled leaf.
