Wingspan ~19mm
RWWA-2799 BOLD DNA All matches from 96-99.2% for Acleris (formally Pyralis) emargana (Fabricius 1775) or cf. A. emargana and a couple for Acleris effractana (Hübner, 1799). DNA has shown Acleris emargana is found from Europe to Siberia, northern China, Korea and Japan and in North America. A. effractana seems to be used as the North American species contrary to DNA indicating A. emargana in NA plus A. effractana is found in Europe also. The data strongly suggests A. emargana and A. effractana are synonyms of a species which exhibit a high degree of polymorphism like certain other tortricids.
