Lampronia morosaOlle Pellmyr
Depicted in Heath & Pelham-Clinton (1976). Wingspan 12-15 mm. Head dark gray. Forewing groundcolor dark fuscous, with whitish, indistinct spots, most commonly at tornus and sometimes also on costa. Hindwings medium gray.
Eggs are possibly laid inside the flowers of several species of Rosa. After hibernation, late-instar larvae are found feeding inside young rose shoots, and pupation occurs within the feeding gallery. The adult emerges in early summer.
A species with patchy distribution throughout Britain, Fennoscandia, and central Europe from France to the Caucasus and Asia Minor.
