Leafrollers, the larvae of certain tortricid moths, often feed and pupate within the protection of rolled-up leaves. Several species can cause problems on fruit and ornamental trees in California. Not a problem necessarily in my garden, as it does minor destruction, and there are beauty's after all. Was resting on some wood, and made it's way to my hand.
In the family of tortricid moths. The length of the forewings is 6-10.2 mm for males and 8.5-11.7 mm for females.
