Apple Pith Moth Blastodacna atra
(Haworth, 1828)Wingspan 11-13 mm.
Occurring in orchards and gardens widely in England, it is more local in Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
The adult moths occur between May and September, and are sometimes attracted to garden light-traps.
The larvae feed inside small twigs of apple (Malus), mining under the surface and causing the shoot to die off.
