Hysterophora maculosana - Distribution map

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.

Hysterophora maculosana

(Haworth, 1811)

Wingspan 10-14 mm.

Occupying woodland habitat and distributed in England and Wales, and parts of Scotland and Ireland, it is locally common in places.

Although the sexes are superficially similar, the hindwings of the males are whitish, whereas those of the female are dark.

The adults fly in May and June, the larvae subsequently feeding inside the seed capsules of bluebell (Endymion non-scriptus)
