Angle-striped Sallow Enargia paleacea: 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.

Angle-striped Sallow Enargia paleacea

(Esper, 1791)


Wingspan 40-60 mm.

With two main areas of scattered distribution, in central England and central Scotland, this species also occurs in southern England as an immigrant.

It inhabits heaths and open woodland, and the resident population flies in July and August, the migrants slightly earlier.

The larvae feed on silver birch (Betula pendula) and downy birch (B. pubescens).
