Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.299 [B&F: 1208] Pseudococcyx posticana (Zetterstedt, 1839)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in pine woodland and on heathland throughout the British Isles. In Hampshire found mainly in the New Forest where, by dint of hard searching, hollowed-out, resinous buds on the lateral shoots of small Scots pine trees, which hold the larva, can be located — there are very few records in Hampshire outside the New Forest, including just one from north Hampshire. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 11-16 mm. Distinguished from Clavigesta sylvestrana by the light tawny-brown coloration of the labial palps, head, thorax and tegulae, which in C. sylvestrana are grey [Bradley]. Larva feeds on buds of Scots Pine.
