Cydia indivisa

(Danilevsky, 1963)

Wingspan c.13-16mm.

One of a group of several very similar moths occurring in coniferous forests, the first record for Britain of this species was trapped in Bernwood Forest, Buckinghamshire, on 4th June 2010.

Occurring in central and eastern Europe, the larvae are said to feed under the bark of Norway spruce (Picea abies), although little is documented about the habits of the early stages.

There is one generation, with adults typically on the wing between May and July.
