Lampronia provectellaOlle Pellmyr
Depicted in Razowski (1978). Wingspan 16-19 mm. Forewing grayish brown with fuscous sheen yellow, with prominent light tornal spot. Hindwings somewhat lighter than forewing, gray.
Host, Oviposition, and Larval Feeding Habits
Larva feeds on buds of Rosa, particularly R. pendulina, evidently as late-instar larvae in the spring. Pupation takes place "between shoots", and the adult ecloses within a week, usually in May or June, according to Huemer.
