49.350 [B&F: 1240] Grapholita caecana Schl├Ąger, 1847

 

Notes: Rare (proposed as a future Red Data Book species) on chalk downland in parts of southern England. In Hampshire recorded just twice to date, at Leaden Hall in June 2004, and Southsea in June 2005. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 12-16 mm. Distinguished from G. gemmiferana by its comparatively narrow wings and the generally greyer coloration and poorly developed ocellus of the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within stems of Sainfoin, over-wintering in a cocoon.
