Name: Strawberry tortrix moth, Acleris comariana
An exotic species, not found in Australia. It is mainly a pest of species from the family Rosaceae and is present in the USA, Canada, Europe and northern Asia, the Mediterranean Basin and South-East Asia. Hosts include strawberry, hawthorn, Malus spp., cinquefoil (Potentilla sp.), avens and comarum. It has also been reported feeding on azaleas and rhododendron (the only known host plants outside Rosaceae).
Since this species is a medium sized, brown moth with few distinctive features, it is similar in appearance to many native moths that are roughly the same size, shape and colour, particularly those from the same family (Tortricidae).
