Lampronia capitella (Clerck, 1759)
currant shoot borer
The young larvae boren in the still green berries, causing them to colour prematurely; frss is partly ejected. They then hibernate in a strong white spinning at the foot of the shrub. After the winter the larva bores in the pith of young shoots, that wither and may die.
distribution within Europe
The young larvae are white; after the hibernation they re olive green with head and prothoracic plate black.
