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.

Eudemis porphyrana

(Hübner, [1799])

Wingspan c. 20mm.

This is a mainly southern species, and can resemble Eudemis profundana, but generally has fewer or less obvious strigulae in the basal half of the wing, and the pale blotch on the dorsum more deeply indented.

In this country the larvae feed mostly on apple (Malus), rolling a leaf in traditional Tortrix manner.

Adults are on the wing in July and August and come to light.
