Cherry-bark Moth Enarmonia formosana

(Scopoli, 1763)


Wingspan 15-19 mm.

At first glance this looks to be a rather dull moth, but closer investigation reveals a complex combination of browns, white and metallic blue markings.

Locally common in Britain, apart from northern Scotland and western Ireland, the moth flies during June and July.

The larvae feed on the bark of fruit and ornamental cherry trees, and the species occurs in gardens, parks and orchards where these occur.
