Red-barred Tortrix Ditula angustiorana (Haworth, 1811)
Status .....Presumed to be common at most sites, although this is not a Tortrix we have recorded many times. The similarity between some examples of this species and Variegated Golden Tortrix (Archips xylosteana) makes the identification of some specimens difficult without experience.
