969 Chequered Fruit-tree Tortrix Pandemis corylana
(Fabricius, 1794)Wingspan 18-21 mm.
The reticulations on the forewing of this species give rise to its English name, although the intensity of these varies somewhat.
The moth flies in July and August, and is fairly common over most of Britain, especially in woodland areas.
The larvae feed on a wide variety of deciduous trees, rolling the leaves in a manner characteristic of the Tortricidae.
