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.

Ptycholomoides aeriferana

(Herrich-Schäffer, 1851)


Wingspan 17-21 mm.

Since its first discovery in Kent in 1951, it has quickly spread throughout a large part of England and is still expanding its range northwards.

The moths fly in July and August, and are attracted to light.

The foodplant is European larch (Larix decidua), the larvae spinning the needles together.
