Recent records from Norwich area.

New for VC28 in 2017. It is remarkable, due to the recent availability of pheromone lures, that this species is only now being recorded for the first time in some areas, considering the abundance of apple orchards in the west of the county, even if these orchards have much declined in recent years. It is also being recorded at isolated apple trees.
