Cream-bordered Green Pea Earias clorana

(Linnaeus, 1761)

Wingspan 16-20 mm.

A small but distinctive species, only likely to be confused with the micro Tortrix viridana, which however rests with a much 'flatter' aspect.

It is scattered locally throughout south-eastern England, with occasional records elsewhere, and inhabits fens, marshes and damp woodland.

Flying mainly in May and June, sometimes there is a second generation in August.

The larvae feed on various willows (Salix), including osier (S. viminalis).
