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.

Zeiraphera isertana

(Fabricius, 1794)


Wingspan c. 17mm.

A variable moth, some showing a distinct pale dorsal blotch and well defined markings, and others with a more obscure appearance. There is often a greenish or olive tinge to some of the markings.

This is a fairly common species throughout much of the British Isles where oak woodland is to be found. The adults fly in July and August and come to light.

The larva feed during May and June in folded or spun leaves of oak (Quercus).
