Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.347 [B&F: 1241] Grapholita compositella (Fabricius, 1775)

 

Notes: Common in dry grassland and flower meadows throughout much of the British Isles, most frequently in the south. In Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight recorded from all three vice-counties in open country amongst clovers, usually in small numbers but sometimes commonly, chiefly in south-eastern parts of the county, flying late in the afternoon sunshine. Wingspan 8-10 mm. Readily distinguished by its characteristic dorsal blotch which is divided into four white striae [Bradley]. Larva feeds within flowerheads of White Clover and Red Clover, subsequently living within a leaf-fold.
