|scientific name Endothenia infuscata |
Exact habitat requirements are unknown.
Single Alberta record collected in June. Specimen from Tortricid.net (2006) database was collected in mid July. Adults probably fly throughout June and July.
Large sized Endothenia species. Forewings of recorded specimen are dark brownish black color and appear to be relatively solid with little contrast in colors. The tip of the forewing is relatively straight instead of curved. Heinrich (1926) suggests that this species resembles Endothenia conditana, however the genitalia is stouter for E. infuscata.
There is not enough empirical data to warrant special conservation concerns.
Specific diet information for this species is unknown however; most larvae from the Olethreutini tribe are oligophagous leaf rollers and webbers. The diversity of host plants used by the larvae of Olethreutini is the broadest for any group of Tortricidae. (Roelofs and Brown 1982).
The true extent of distribution is unknown. Recorded Alberta specimen collected in Edmonton. Records indicate that this species can also be found in Maryland, United States (Tortricid.net 2006).
