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.

Epinotia ramella

(Linnaeus, 1758)


Wingspan 13-16 mm.

The typical form of this moth has a dark triangular patch on the forewing, somewhat like Epinotia bilunana, but a fairly common variation is f. costana, which has an all dark forewing with a pale edge on the costa.

Fairly common throughout, the adults fly from July into October.

The larvae feed on the catkins of birch (Betula) and sallow (Salix).
