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.

Euzophera cinerosella

(Zeller, 1839)

Wingspan 23-28 mm.

A species which until fairly recently was found only scarcely in the southern half of England and Wales, but has now extended its range and is occasionally found northwards into Yorkshire.

The larval foodplant is wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), the larvae feeding internally in the roots.

The moths are on the wing from May to August, and can be attracted to light.
