- Acleris emargana emargana (Europe to Japan)
- Acleris emargana tibetica (Tibet)
Acleris emargana blackmorei, described as occurring in North America, was formerly considered a subspecies of A. emargana. Per Karsholt et al. (2005), it is now considered synonymous with Acleris effractana.
Acleris emargana has a wingspan of 18–22 mm. It is a quite variable species. The forewings are greyish brown or yellow ochereous, lightly translucent, usually more or less notched and hooked on the costa, with a reticulated (net-like) pattern. Hindwings are greyish and translucent. The moths are on wing from July to November and fly at dusk.
The larvae can reach a length of about 15 mm. They are pale green, with a pale brown head. Caterpillars feed on the leaves and shoots of various trees, including Alnus glutinosa, Corylus, Salix, Populus and Betula.
