A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Not a tortrix, but Scythropia crataegella Hawthorn moth. It can be a pest defoliating Cotoneaster plants and covering then with the communal webs the caterpillars make. These become very obvious and can make it into local newspapers with silly headlines and misidentifications.
