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.

Currant Clearwing Synanthedon tipuliformis

(Clerck, 1759)

[Synonyms: Synanthedon salmachus]
Wingspan 17-20 mm.

The larvae of this species feed internally on the shoots of red currant and black currant bushes (Ribes), and therefore tends to be found around allotments and other similar places.

This rather small species (c. 18mm wingspan) is on the wing between late May and July.

It is widely distributed throughout England and Wales, extending into parts of Scotland, but is not especially common anywhere.
