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.

Dichrorampha senectana

Guenée, 1845

Wingspan c. 12-16mm.

A somewhat local species, being found mainly in the southern counties of England and Wales, most frequently in coastal regions.

The larvae, like other Dicrorampha species, feeds in the rootstock of the foodplant, in this case ox-eye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare).

The adults, which fly in June, resemble D. plumbagana. In fresh specimens, the darker grey tips to the cilia of the forewings can help distinguish from that species.
