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.

Dichrorampha sedatana

Busck, 1906


Wingspan c. 14mm.

This species resembles Dichrorampha plumbana but is generally slightly larger, and has a yellowish suffusion around the base of the forewing not present in that species.

It is relatively common over much of mainland Britain, and inhabits rough ground, verges and embankments etc where the foodplant grows.

The larvae feed in the roots of tansy (Tanacetum vulgare).
