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.

Tinea semifulvella

Haworth, 1828


Wingspan 14-22 mm.

Perhaps the most colourful of the British Tineidae, and one of the largest, this species is common over most of the British Isles.

The larvae feed in birds' nests and on woollen remains, such as sheeps' wool.

The adults fly nocturnally between May and September and are often found in light traps.
