970 Barred Fruit-tree Tortrix Pandemis cerasana
(Hübner, 1786)Wingspan 16-25 mm.
This is one of several quite similar 'tortrix' moths, which hold their wings in a flattened, bell-shape posture when at rest.
It is quite a common species throughout much of Britain, flies from June to August, from dusk into the night, and is attracted to light.
It is to be found in gardens, orchards and other woodland areas, the foodplants being many kinds of deciduous trees, especially fruit-trees.
