Tufted apple bud moth

Platynota idaeusalis

The adult female moth is approximately ½ inch long, the male slightly smaller. Wing color is generally grayish at the base, gradually darkening to brown at the tips, with a lighter-colored margin along the leading edge of the wings. The moth is named for the tufted scales that can be seen as two or three groups on the tops of the wings. Moths are extremely well camouflaged on tree trunks.
