Stigmella centifoliella: 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.

Stigmella centifoliella

(Zeller, 1848)


Wingspan c.4-6 mm.

A somewhat local species, occurring in the south-eastern counties of England, ranging north to Cumbria.

The larvae feed on a number of rose Rosa species, including cultivated ones, and create a gallery mine similar to that of S. anomalella, though the central frass line is generally narrower with clearer margins.

There are two generations, producing adults in April/May and July/August, and larvae in June/July and again from September, sometimes to December.
