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.

Parornix loganella

(Stainton, 1848)

Wingspan c. 10mm.

A largely northern species, occurring from Lancashire and Yorkshire northwards with a few records from further south.

Occupying woodland and moorland/hillsides with plenty of the foodplant birch Betulae, the early stages are very similar to those of P. Betulae, initially forming a gallery, then later a fold in a leaf.

There is a single generation, with adults flying in May-June and larvae present in July -August.
