Australian Light Brown Apple Moth here in Cornwall

with No Comments
Amongst recent moth sightings here in Falmouth, Cornwall have been several specimens of the recent colonist from Australia: the Light Brown Apple Moth. Thought to have been accidentally imported into Cornwall in the 1930s this highly variable little moth is now common throughout much of the UK.

A new page featuring information and photographs of different coloured forms, identification of the larvae, life cycle and pest status can be seen on Light Brown Apple Moth, Epiphyas postvittana.
