Pammene germmana: 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.

Pammene germmana

(Hübner, [1799])


Wingspan c.12 mm.

This species, despite its dull appearance, is relatively easy to recognise. It has a dark brown quite plain appearance, with a series of creamy-coloured strigulae along the costa, interspersed with occasional bluish-metallic streaks.

Its known distribution covers much of England, but is not very common anywhere, and becomes scarcer further north.

The adults fly in May and June. The life history is not well documented, but apparently the larvae feed in fruits of plum (Prunus), and possibly in shoots of oak (Quercus) and hawthorn (Crataegus).
