Dark Fruit-tree Tortrix Pandemis heparana

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

Wingspan 16-24 mm.

Sometimes called 'leaf-rollers', the larvae of many of this family live in 'spinnings' where a leaf is rolled around and attached together with silk.

This species flies between June and August, later in the north.

Quite common over much of England, Wales and parts of Scotland, and like P. cerasana, the larvae feed on various fruit and other deciduous trees.
