Coleophora therinella: 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 therinella

Tengström, 1848


Wingspan c. 15mm.

One of a number of very similar-looking streaked Coleophorids, which as adults can only reliably be identified by genitalia dissection, this species is quite local and has been recorded mainly to light in the southern half of England, as well as in the Burren, Co. Clare.

The larva feeds on black-bindweed (Fallopia convolvulus), in a portable case typical of the genus.

Adult moths are on the wing in June and July.
