Main: (Choreutidae / Choreutinae)
48.007 [B&F: 0389] Apple Leaf Skeletonizer (Choreutis pariana) (Clerck, 1759)

 

Notes: Local in orchards, gardens and hedgerows throughout Britain. Most records in Hampshire are from the extreme south-east corner of the county, with very few records from north Hampshire or the Isle of Wight, and the species is possibly overlooked in these vice-counties. Wingspan 11-15 mm. Very variable but easily recognised by its brown colouring, usually with bright red-brown cilia, and absence of silvery markings (MBGBI Vol 2). Day-flying. Larva feeds on the foliage of Apple, Crab Apple and various fruit trees, causing sufficient damage to be a serious pest in some areas.
