Caryocolum junctella: 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.

Caryocolum junctella

(Douglas, 1851)


Wingspan c. 10mm.

This rather local species occurs in parts of England and northern Scotland, although being very similar to other Caryocolum species, its complete distribution is not fully known.

Adult moths fly from July onwards, and hibernates over winter, flying again in the spring.

The larva feed on mouse-ear (Cerastium) and lesser stitchwort (Stellaria gramina) in Britain, although on the continent a number of other foodplants are used.
