Agrotera nemoralis: Distribution map

Please note that the NBN Gateway map service has been terminated as of 1 April 2017.

As soon as a replacement map service is available, distribution maps will hopefully appear here again.

In the meantime, you can get some idea of distribution from the NBN Atlas website.

Agrotera nemoralis

(Scopoli, 1763)


Wingspan 20-24 mm.

This attractive rare Crambid is perhaps restricted to one hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) wood in Kent. Other finds in southern coastal counties probably represent immigrants.

The adults are on the wing from May to July and come to light.

The larvae feed on hornbeam, birch, hazel and chestnut leaves.
