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.

Acleris holmiana

(Linnaeus, 1758)


Wingspan c.13 mm.

A very distinctive species, distributed widely throughout much of Britain, although scarcer in the north.

The larvae feed on a range of Rosaceous trees and shrubs including hawthorn (Crataegus), rose (Rosa) and apple (Malus). They spin two leaves together and feed within, during May and June.

The flight period of the adult moths is July and August in a single generation. They are easily disturbed by day and at night can be attracted to light.
