of the Lepidoptera of Belgium

Archips rosana (Linnaeus, 1758)

A common species throughout Belgium.

The larva lives first in a bud, later in rolled or spun leaves, but also on the flowers and the buds, of fruit and other deciduous trees, occasionally on conifers, Myrica or herbaceous plants. Pupation takes place in a cocoon in the larval habitation.

The adults have been observed from the end of June till well in September. They are active at dusk and later come to light.
