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.

Chocolate-tip Clostera curtula

(Linnaeus, 1758)


Wingspan 27-35 mm.

Having a disjointed distribution, this moth can be found in the southern half of England and Wales, but elsewhere only in parts of Scotland.

The English population has two generations, with adults at large in April and May, and again in August and September. In Scotland the species is single-brooded, flying from June to July.

Inhabiting woodland areas, the larvae feed on poplar (Populus), especially aspen (P. tremula) as well as sallow (Salix).
