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.

Pseudopostega crepusculella

(Zeller, 1839)

Wingspan 7-10.5 mm

Fairly well distributed throughout the British Isles, though relatively local, occupying damp areas such as fens, alder carrs and similar habitats.

The early life-stages are not described, as the species is generally only seen as an adult moth. It is however, believed to be associated with mint (Mentha).

The adults fly during June and July and can be attracted to light.
