Rearing success: Lozotaenia forsterana

This smart, yet brute of a Tortrix emerged from its pupa over the weekend: Lozotaenia forsterana.

The larva, given away by its spinning of leaves together, was collected from Hawthorn three weeks ago and duly emerged on 12.v.12.

I am always fascinated by what's left behind too so have also included a picture of the exuvia.
