Acleris oxycoccana (Packard, 1869)
Tortrix oxycoccana Packard, 1869
Explanation of Names
The name oxycoccana was proposed by Packard (1869) based on the host plant Vaccinium oxycoccos (cranberry).
Cranberry (Packard, 1869) lists leatherleaf (Chamaedaphne calyculata) and sand cherry (Prunus pumila) as host plants.
