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 hilarella

(Zetterstedt, 1839)


Wingspan 7-9mm.

A common moth, found widespread throughout Britain.

The species is bivoltine, with a flight period in late May and June and again in August.

The mines are found on Sallow species (Salix) in July and then September to early November
and are large and not regularly shaped. They can be confused with Phyllonorycter dubitella
mines and the moths should be bred out to confirm identification.
