Agriphila inquinatella: 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.

Agriphila inquinatella

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)


Wingspan c.22 mm.

Quite distinctive, but variable, with its whitish or creamy ground colour suffused with darker markings, this species prefers dryer grassy areas.

On the wing from July to September, it can be attracted by light.

Present throughout most of Britain in suitable habitat, it becomes less common further north.
