Coptotriche angusticollella: 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.

Coptotriche angusticollella

(Duponchel, [1843])

[Synonyms: Emmetia angusticolella]

Wingspan c.9 mm.

A somewhat local species, occurring in England north to Lancashire and Yorkshire, but rather scarcely.

The larva feeds on rose (Rosa), and like other Coptotriche, produces a pale , papery blotch mine on the upperside of the leaves.

The mine contorts the leaf causing it to fold upwards and often conceal the mine.

Adult moths are on the wing in May and June.
