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.

Endotricha flammealis

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)

Wingspan 18-23 mm.

Another species which has an unusual resting posture. The front part of the body is raised up on the forelegs, and the wings held at an angle, with the edges touching the resting surface.

The larvae feed initially on a range of plants and bushes, and later amongst leaf-litter.

It occurs locally throughout the southern half of Britain, and flies during July and August, when it comes to light.
