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.

Phaulernis fulviguttella

(Zeller, 1839)

Wingspan 10-11 mm.

Reasonably common throughout much of the British Isles, the adults of this species can be found in the daytime resting on the flowers of the foodplants, hogweed (Heracleum sphondylium) and wild angelica (Angelica sylvestris), as depicted in the photograph.

The flight period is during July and August, and the larvae feed in spun seeds of the foodplant from September to October before overwintering as a pupa.
