A selection of Light Brown Apple Moths

The first two pictures on  top left are definitely male moths, the others are probably females. The females of the Light Brown Apple Moth are extremely variable in appearance. I have seen many more variations that differ to the pictures featured above. This moth first appeared in the nineteen thirties, and was probably accidentally imported from Australia, and is now well established, and very common.
