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.

The Brick Agrochola circellaris

(Hufnagel, 1766)


Wingspan 33-38 mm.

One of several similar, orange-coloured species which emerge during the autumn period, it is distributed widely over much of Britain and is fairly common.

It frequents mainly woodland and parkland, and is on the wing from August to October.

The larvae feed on the flowers and leaves of wych elm (Ulmus glabra) or poplar (Populus) when young, later feeding on the leaves.
