Cydia pomonella (Linnaeus, 1958)
mainly on Rosaceae
The larvae bore in the fruits, feeding mainly on the seeds. Infected fruits are stunted and ripen prematurely. Pupation in a cocoon outside of the fruit.
Mainly on apple. The occurrence on Juglans regia, as described by, among others, Meijerman & Ulenberg, is astonishing, given the different structure of the fruit; sometimes it is considered a separate variety. Records from Castanea sativa; Ficus carica; Sorbus aria are exceptional at least.
Bivoltine; hibernation as larva.
