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.

Denisia albimaculea

(Haworth, 1828)

Wingspan 9-12 mm.

The eggs of this species are laid in crevices on the bark of trees, such as larch (Larix), maple (Acer), lime (Tilia), apple (Malus) and elm (Ulmus) where the larvae emerge to form silken galleries, and where pupation occurs in early spring.

The adults emerge in a single generation in May and June and may be found sitting on tree trunks. The individual photographed was found sitting on a maple trunk in a Manchester park.
