49.340 [B&F: 1264] Cydia leguminana (Lienig & Zeller, 1846)

Unlikely to be recorded in Hampshire or on the Isle of Wight. Wingspan 12-15 mm. Reminiscent of G. lunulana but distinguished by the short medio-dorsal blotch which extends only to the submedian fold on the forewing [Bradley]. Larva feeds within damaged bark of Elm.
