Lepidoptera Carpocapsa Pomonella Moth

Pomonella Moths Fig. 232.-Pomonella.

The same extensive family contains a few moths that are very destructive to our fruits, the larva burrowing into and living entirely within their substance. One of these-Pomonella-is popularly known as the Codlin, as its larva is so often found in the interior of small apples of the same name.

The fore wings of this insect are grey, with a number of dark transverse lines. The spot in the anal angle is edged with a coppery tint, and inclosed by a curved black line.

This moth is common in all parts, flying during June and July; and the larva may be looked for in apples and pears in August and September.
