49.300 [B&F: 1209] Pine Bud Moth (Pseudococcyx turionella) (Linnaeus, 1758)

 

Notes: Nationally scarce (Nb) in pine woodland throughout much of southern England and Scotland. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight whilst concentrated in the New Forest, this species has turned up in Scots Pine woodland in other scattered locales. Wingspan 14-21 mm. Reminiscent of Clavigesta purdeyi in general appearance but readily distinguished by its much larger size, the ochreous-orange labial palpi and head and the white, infuscate hindwings [Bradley]. Larva feeds on buds of Scots Pine and Lodgepole Pine, causing some damage by selecting the central bud of a shoot, thereby aborting it.
