Carnation Tortrix Cacoecimorpha pronubana (Hübner, 1799)
Status .....A common Tortrix across much of the UK, with a distribution aided by the horticulture industry. In Nottinghamshire, Carnation Tortrix is probably a widespread moth of gardens in both urban and suburban areas, but there seem to be relatively few records. The female is larger than the male and this moth is easily recorded when flying during the day, as the hindwings are conspicuously orange.
Female. Photographed at an unknown location September 2012. Only recently identified as being this species.
Male. Photographed at Langold near Worksop photographed by Pauline Bradford, June 2015
