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.

Cydia microgrammana

(Guenée, 1845)

[Synonyms: Collicularia microgrammana]
Wingspan c.12 mm.

A fairly local species, distributed mostly in the southern English counties but with scattered records further north, this is a relatively pale moth, the males having light-coloured hindwings.

The adults fly in June and July, and the larvae feed on common restharrow (Ononis repens), feeding inside the seed heads.
