Main: (Tortricidae / Olethreutinae)
49.261 [B&F: 1157] Crocidosema plebejana Zeller, 1847

 

Local in gardens and on waste ground in parts of southern England. An adventive species, naturalised through accidental introduction from warmer climes, now fully naturalised. In Hampshire since the first record of this species at Martyr Worthy in 1961, it appears to have become established at low density along the coast, with a scattering of records inland and on the western end of the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 12-16 mm. The overall pale ochreous general coloration and the well-developed and relatively conspicuous, triangular pre-tornal marking are characteristic. The male is readily distinguished by the prominent cubital pecten on the hindwing [Bradley]. Larva feeds on shoots and seed capsules of Tree-mallow.
