Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.233 [B&F: 1156] Epinotia solandriana (Linnaeus, 1758)

 

Notes: Common in woodland and scrubland throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire widespread and common. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight since 1975, formerly widespread in the north of the Island. Wingspan 15-21 mm. The nominate form of E. solandriana with the elongate-semiovate dorsal blotch on the forewing is distinctive, but forms with fasciate markings or with a white triangular blotch of ground colour dorsally can be confused with similar forms of E. brunnichana; in E. solandriana the dorsal blotch is triangular instead of subquadrate [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Birch, Hazel and Goat Willow, living within a spun or rolled leaf.
