Phyllonorycter quinqueguttella: 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.

Phyllonorycter quinqueguttella

(Stainton, 1851)


Wingspan 6 -7.5 mm.

A relatively local and uncommon species, distributed mainly in the coastal counties around the British Isles.

The larval foodplants are creeping willow (Salix repens) and sandhill creeping willow (Salix arenaria). The larva feeds in a blotch on the underside of the leaf, which contracts and causes the leaf to pucker strongly. The mine is quite large and can occupy most of a leaf.

Like many other Phyllonorycter species, the moth has two generations, flying in May and again in August.
