Pandemis cinnamomeana

(Treitschke, 1830)

Wingspan c. 18-24mm.

A relatively local species, occurring in deciduous woodland habitats in England and Wales.

It can resemble Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix Pandemis heparana but there are subtle differences. Males in particular have a whitish forehead.

The larvae feed on the leaves of a range of deciduous trees during May and June.

Adults can be found on the wing from Late June through July, with a second generation in the south, during August and September.
