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.

Currant Pug Eupithecia assimilata

Doubleday, 1856


Wingspan 17-22 mm.

Although superficially similar to several other Eupithecia species, this moth usually has a distinct black mark on the forewing, a broken white subterminal line ending in a 'toothed' white blotch, and a general chestnut colour to the forewings.

It inhabits woodland edges, gardens and allotments, and flies during May and June, with a second brood in the south during August.

The larvae lives on hop (Humulus lupulus) and red or black currant (Ribes spp.).
