Chapter Summary

This chapter of the book The Moths and Butterflies of Great Britain and Ireland presents a subfamily of moth in a family Tortricidae. The book studies a monophyletic family i.e. Tortricidae, which was divided into three subfamilies, Tortricinae, Cochylinae and Olethreutinae. It talks about the differentiation of sexes in Tortricid moths. Female has frenulum with 2-4 stiff bristles; forewing never with a costal fold; distal end of abdomen with ovipositor tipped by a pair of sensory pads. Male has the frenular bristles fused to form a single stout bristle; forewing sometimes with a costal fold; distal end of abdomen with a pair of moveable chitinous valves.

Keywords: butterflies; Cochylinae; Olethreutinae; Tortricidae; Tortricinae
