Phyllonorycter dubitella: 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.

Phyllonorycter dubitella

(Herrich-Schäffer, 1855)


Wingspan c.8 mm.

Generally speaking a species of southern and central England, the adult depicted was the first Lancashire record, found as a leafmine in Chorlton, Greater Manchester.

The species mines the leaves of goat willow (Salix caprea), causing the upper surface of the leaf to fold quite dramatically.

There are two generations of the moth, with leafmines being visible in July and again in September and October, and adults on the wing in May and June, and again in August.
