Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the systematic treatment of species of Tortricinae. It also presents description of imago, life history, and a distribution of the species of the Tortricinae. Some of the species are Spatalistis Bifasciana, Tortrix Viridana, Aleimma Loeflingiana, Acleris Forsskaleana, Acleris Holmiana, Acleris Laterana, Neosphaleroptera Nubilana, and Tortricodes Alternella. Tortrix Viridana's Wingspan is about 17-24 mm., occasionally much smaller. The chapter describes some of the characteristics: no marked sexual dimorphism; forewing without costal fold in male, antennae barred pale brown and white, labial palps biege tinged greenish; head, thorax and tegulae pale to bright green, forewing uniform green, including basal ciliary line, outer cilia white; costa thinly cream but fuscous towards base. Frequents oak woods and open woodland, occasionally found on open moorland amongst Salix and Vaccinium.
