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.

Ectoedemia angulifasciella

(Stainton, 1849)

Wingspan 5-6 mm.

A locally common species occurring in England, Wales and southern Scotland.

The larva creates a mine in a rose (Rosa) leaf, beginning as a contorted gallery filled with brownish frass and then widening into a blotch with central or dispersed blackish frass. The young larva itself has a chain of dark spots on the abdomen, which can be seen from above the mine, since the larva mines venter upwards. In later instars, these spots become smaller and less noticeable, and the green gut can be seen.

The adults fly during July and the mines can be found from September to November.
