Corn Moth Nemapogon granella: 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.

Corn Moth Nemapogon granella

(Linnaeus, 1758)


Wingspan c.10-15 mm.

With a local but scattered distribution throughout much of Great Britain, this species has a tendency to be transported around due to its liking for stored food products.

It is similar to other species in the group, in particular N. cloacella, and care should be taken in identification.

The moth can be found any time from March to September, and the larvae feed on grain and other stored vegetable products indoors, as well as various bracket fungi out of doors.
