Tortricidia pallida – Abbreviated Button Slug

Hodges # 4654

Caterpillar foods: birch, cherry, oak (HOSTS)

According to Wagner, Dennis Profant, and several others, T. flexuosa and T. pallida are probably the same species.  They range in pattern and color from yellowy with wide brown markings, to more pink-brown with faint lines, or no lines at all.  T. pallida is the senior name, so that’s what I’ll call all of them.   (Bugguide and Moth Photographers Group)
