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.

Eucosma hohenwartiana

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)


Wingspan 11-23 mm.

A fairly common species over most of Britain except for parts of Scotland, inhabiting dry, open and grassy areas.

The larvae feed inside the flowerheads of knapweed (Centaurea) and saw-wort (Serratula). In Centaurea nigra the larvae may be confused with the very similar larvae of Eucosma cana.

A single-brooded species with a flight period from June to August.
