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 klemannella

(Fabricius, 1781)

Wingspan 7-9 mm.

Distributed throughout mainland Britain, though rare in the southern half of Scotland and in Ireland, it can be common in places.

The larva feeds on alder (Alnus glutinosa), forming a small blotch mine on the underside of a leaf. Sometimes several larvae mine the same leaf.

The adults fly mostly in August, but the species may be bivoltine, with moths also recorded in May.
