Clepsis consimilana (Hübner, 1817)
Lepidoptera: Tortricidae

Clepsis consimilana is a moth of the Tortricidae family. Wing span 13-19mm.

Eggs are deposited in small batches of 6-12 eggs on the upper surface of the leaves along the midrib. They hatch after ca. 12 days. Larvae occur from August to May, hibernating in the third instar in a hibernaculum made in dead leaves of the food plant. In Europe, moths fly from June to August and in September.

Larvae are an occasional pest on plum (Prunus), and can also be found on apple (Malus), Carpinus, Crataegus, Hedera, Ligustrum, Syringa, Taxus and Polygonum.

Larvae feed on dead leaves, but occasionally also on fruits.
