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.

Wingspan 9 mm.

A tiny, but distinctively marked species, which has two generations in the year, flying during May and again in August.
