Ancylis geminana: 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.

Ancylis geminana

(Donovan, 1806)


Wingspan c. 15mm.

This species is distributed widely but locally across much of the British Isles, and ranges northwards to Scotland and its outlying islands.

The variations or forms illustrated in BTS (British Tortricoid Moths), f. subarcuana and f. diminutana, now appear to be considered as separate species, so care is advised in identifying the identification, and genitalia dissection is recommended.

The larval foodplants are willows (Salix spp.), and the adult moths are on the wing from May to August in an extended emergence period.
