Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.259 [B&F: 1163] Spruce Bud Moth (Zeiraphera ratzeburgiana) (Saxesen, 1840)

 

Notes: Local in coniferous woodland and plantations throughout much of the British Isles. In Hampshire local and rather rare in spruce woodland, recorded infrequently along the coast and in the north, but absent from much of central Hampshire. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 12-15 mm. Similar to Z. rufimitrana but differs by the larger and more sharply angulated basal patch, which approaches the median fascia more closely to enclose a nearly triangular blotch of ground colour, and paler hindwing [Bradley]. Larva feeds on buds of Norway Spruce and coniferous trees, living between needles spun together with silk, over-wintering as an egg.
