Main: (Tortricidae / Tortricinae)
49.088 [B&F: 1056] Acleris lipsiana ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)


Rare (proposed as a future Red Data Book species) on moorland and mountains in parts of Scotland and northern England. Not recorded in Hampshire or on the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 17-24 mm. The common form of this species, f. sudoriana, which lacks the whitish yellow discocellular scale-tufts, closely resembles f. purpurana of A. rufana, but may be distinguished by the comparatively broader forewing and less prominent apex, and the more uniform pruinose coloration [Bradley]. Larva feeds on Bog-myrtle, Bilberry, Bog Bilberry and Cowberry, living within a spun or rolled leaf.
