Pandemis corylana, the chequered fruit-tree tortrix, hazel tortrix moth, filbert tortricid or barred fruit tree moth, is a moth of the Tortricidae family. It is found from northern and central Europe to Siberia, Korea and Japan.[2]

The wingspan is 18–24 mm. Adults are on wing from July to August in western Europe. In Korea, adults are on wing from early June to the end of September. Adults hide amongst foliage during the day, usually in the more open parts of the woods and fly freely at dusk.

The larvae feed on the leaves of various deciduous trees and shrubs, including Corylus, Fraxinus, Prunus, Quercus, Rubus, Swida sanguinea, Betula, Fagus, Larix, Pinus, Rhamnus frangula, Thelycrania sanguinea and Vaccinium. They live in spun leaves or in a longitudinally folded leaf. Larvae can be found from May to July.[3] Pupation occurs in the larval habitation.

It is an occasional pest of cultivated nut and fruit trees.
