Coleophora badiipennella: 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.

Coleophora badiipennella

(Duponchel, [1843])


Wingspan 9-11 mm.

Locally distributed throughout much of England, the adults fly in June and July and occasionally come to light.

The larva constructs a case from a fragment of a leaf of the foodplant, elm (Ulmus), after mining a narrow gallery.

It occurs around the edges of woodland and prefers saplings to mature trees.
