Pammene argyrana (Hübner, 1799)
The larvae develop in galls on oak, like those of Biorhiza pallida. However, de Jong & Beeke describe meticulously how the larva also may develop in fruits, in particular apple and pear.
Univoltine; the larve hibernates in a cocoon, either in the gall or behind bark.
