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.

Eucosma campoliliana

([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)


Wingspan 13-18 mm.

Quite distinctive with its black and brown markings on a white background, and white head, this species is distributed widely over Britain, but mainly coastally.

It prefers dry locations, and the larvae feed on the seeds and stems of ragwort (Senecio jacobaea).

The moths fly in June and July, from evening onwards, and are attracted to light.
