Phyllonorycter anderidae: 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.

Phyllonorycter anderidae

(Fletcher, 1885)


Wingspan 5.5-6.5 mm.

A scarce and local species occurring on heaths and moors, with a scattered distribution mainly in the north-west of England and Wales, and south-east England.

The larva feeds on birch (Betula), and seedling trees are preferred, causing the populations to move around in order to find suitable breeding localities.

The adult moths fly in May and again in August, but are seldom encountered except by rearing from leafmines.
