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.

Ancylis badiana

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)


Wingspan 12-16 mm.

Two generations of this moth occur during the year, the first in April and May, and later from July to August.

It is active in the late afternoon into the evening, and inhabits a range of woodland and open ground biotopes.

The larvae feed on the leaves of pea (Lathyrus), vetch (Vicia) and clover (Trifolium). The second generation larvae overwinter in a state of diapause.
