Syncopacma suecicella: 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.

Syncopacma suecicella

(Wolff, 1958)


Wingspan c.8-9mm.

This species was added to the British list in 1986 by Bob Heckford who discovered larvae in Cornwall on hairy greenweed (Genista pilosa).

Despite attempts to find it elsewhere in the region in suitable habitat where the foodplant grows, it hasn't yet been located beyond its original discovery place.

The larvae feed between spun leaves of the foodplant typically during May and June. Adult moths fly in June and July in a single generation.
