Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.215 [B&F: 1115] Ancylis achatana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

 

Notes: Common in hedgerows, thickets and copses throughout much of southern England, with records north to Yorkshire. In Hampshire widespread and fairly common, but on the Isle of Wight only two recent records at Freshwater in 1993 and 1999. Wingspan 14-18 mm. Differs from other British Ancylis species by its obtusely falcate, broad forewing and comparatively well-defined fasciate markings which in the tornal area are developed into a prominent quadrate or triangular blotch [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Hawthorn and Blackthorn, living within a spun or rolled leaf.
