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.

Gelechia cuneatella

Douglas, 1852


Wingspan c. 13-16mm.

Another rare and local species, with few modern records. Most early records are from East Yorkshire and South-eastern counties, although a number have been found in the Midlands and Warwickshire in recent years.

The favoured habitats are river banks and marshes, and the larvae are said to feed on various willow (Salix) species, although little is written about the early stages.

Adult moths fly in a single generation in August and September.
