Argyresthia curvella

(Linnaeus, 1761)

Wingspan 10-12 mm.

This fairly common moth is found in gardens and orchards throughout much of Britain. The larva feeds on the flowers of apple trees (Malus), and can be a pest where it is abundant.

The adult flies at night in June and July and is attracted to light.

It is another small species, with a wingspan of about 10mm.
