Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.247 [B&F: 1131] Epinotia subsequana (Haworth, 1811)

 

Notes: Vulnerable (proposed as a future Red Data Book species) in woodland, gardens and parks in parts of England, Wales and southern Ireland. In Hampshire known in the past from two localities in southern Hampshire - Havant Thicket and Parnholt Wood - where it was formerly common amongst Giant Fir, however the only recent record is from Avon Heath Country Park in 2000. Distribution in Hampshire is similar to E. fraternana. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 11-13 mm. Both sexes of this species differ from E. pygmaeana by the more extensively infuscate hindwing and the presence of a weak ocellus in the forewing; the antenna of the male of E. subsequana is not biciliate-fasciculate [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Norway Spruce, European Silver-fir and Giant Fir, living between needles spun together with silk, over-wintering as a pupa.
