Plum Tortrix Hedya pruniana

(Hübner, [1799])


Wingspan 15-18 mm.

This species closely resembles Hedya nubiferana but can be distinguished by the difference in position of the two blackish dots on the white of the forewing.

The larvae feed on various forms of Prunus including blackthorn (P. spinosa) and plum (P. domestica).

The adults fly from late May to July and the species is fairly common throughout most of Britain.
